About the Author

Andrea Hollomotz is Lecturer in Social Policy at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. Her particular interest in the subject area at hand arose from her experiences of conducting adult protection work in the field.


This book deals with a rarely debated subject with which social workers and the courts are too often confronted. The author addresses a topic which could at first glance appear pretty grim but her approach is inclusive and refreshingly right-based, offering a constructive and empowering discussion. -- Seen and Heard
I found this book thought-provoking and a welcome challenge to established ideas about vulnerability... The book is rich with excerpts from interviews and examples from Hollomotz's research, adding depth to the narrative and theory. It is a useful resource for anyone working in safeguarding adults, who wants to empower, just protect the service user. -- Community Care
