National Competency Framework
Staff and volunteers have a critical role in helping adults at risk stay safe from harm. We want to support them in this work.
We recommend that every organisation that works with adults at risk uses the new ‘competency framework’, written by Bournemouth University. The framework sets out what staff and volunteers need to know and do to help adults at risk. It includes a checklist that managers, staff and volunteers can use to look at how they work and find ways to improve.
The university did a lot of research before writing the framework, including talking to service users, carers and professionals. The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), Learn to Care and Skills for Care have all approved this framework.
