This comprehensive book uniquely acknowledges the overlap between different states of adult vulnerability within a range of health, social care and community contexts. The book looks beyond social work practice and legislative focus to examine the categories of ‘at risk’ and ‘vulnerable adults’. These include often forgotten groups such as homeless people, prisoners and migrant workers. Through a range of practical examples, the book illustrates how professionals can usefully and effectively intervene to lessen the chance of a member of an excluded community becoming at greater ‘risk’ of further vulnerability. The book includes: Explanations of core themes and implications for a range of professionals and service providers with a practical and accessible focus Case studies and practice examples from work with vulnerable groups Illustrative examples of how different states of vulnerability are frequently contingent upon one another
