Course Description

BSL-Interpreted webinar: 

Interpreting in social services and with vulnerable adults brings its own demands and requires you to employ specific controls. There are procedures which must be adhered to and specific jargon interpreters will need to be familiar with.

If you have concerns about a Deaf client, who do you report them to and how?

During this live webinar you'll learn about the safeguarding of vulnerable adults legalities and typical meetings you may be asked to interpret - from information gathering to Multi-Agency Safeguarding Adult Strategy Meetings. You'll understand what constitutes a vulnerable adult so that you can consider the implications on your practice.
