Vulnerable Person’s Act (VPA): Life in Full Colour

Overview: Based upon the workbook, “The Agency Guide to the Vulnerable Persons Act”, this session explores ways that we can support people to live a full life and have full citizenship in community. This session touches on a wide variety of topics that affect our daily work, with a focus on empowering the people we support to exercise their rights.

Learning Objectives:

  • State the five guiding principles of the Vulnerable Person’s Act and how they relate to the people we support.
  • Explain how our choice of words and labels impact the people we support.
  • Identify ways to provide choices.
  • Compare legal decision making status and how it affects the daily life of the people we support.

What you can expect:
In this workshop you can expect lectures, videos, group discussions and breakout rooms. You must join with a device that has a webcam and microphone. ​
