Social Care Intervention and Human Rights: A practitioner's guide

The booklet is free but postage cost will be added at Checkout

This booklet is about human rights in social care settings. It is aimed at social care practitioners working in settings where mental capacity or mental health is a factor. We use the term 'practitioner' throughout to include anyone working in these settings (e.g. qualified and unqualified workers). Lots of information in the booklet may also be useful for people using services, their family, carers or advocates. 

Key issues covered: 

Removing people from their own home to a care setting, including a decision-making flowchart

Adult safeguarding interventions and 'unwise' decisions 

Rights of learning disabled people to marry and have a family 

This booklet is also available as part of our Practitioner Toolkit.
