Working with Vulnerable Populations

In-person | Atlanta
Working with vulnerable populations, including children and the elderly, requires special skills but also has additional legal requirements. Nonprofits that work with vulnerable populations need to prepare for and address those legal requirements including reporting and managing suspected abuse, neglect or exploitation. Nonprofits should not wait until faced with a potentially life-threatening situation to learn about these issues because the responsibility to act is immediate.
During this 1 ½ hour presentation, our speaker will help nonprofits understand:
- Issues regarding mandatory reporters such as: Who is a reporter? What must be reported and when? What are the liabilities and protections?
- What type of documentation, protocols, and policies should you have?
- What type of training should you offer?
- What background checks and information should you require of staff and volunteers?
