Assessing Priority Need & Vulnerability

About this Course

The practical course aims to assist those officers who have to make decisions in relation to priority need and in particular the complex area of assessing vulnerability. There have been many Court of Appeal decisions over the last two years as they offer advice on how to correctly assess vulnerability and the role that the public sector equality duty plays when making such assessments.  We also consider the possible impact of COVID-19 when assessing vulnerability. We also look at the obligations around interim accommodation. 


At every stage the Code of Guidance 2018 will be highlighted. Delegates will also receive templates and forms, including vulnerability questionnaire and GP medical questionnaires. 

Who Should Attend

This course is suitable for officers working for local authorities and who have to assess priority need.
