Anti-social behaviour policy and procedure

Vulnerable people

A person may be vulnerable for a variety of reasons, for example:

  • mental illness
  • learning disability
  • drug or alcohol dependence
  • physical disability
  • sensory impairment
  • ethnicity

If a person is deemed to be vulnerable, interventions are made as soon as possible to prevent further problems occurring. Every effort is made to work with vulnerable people to try to resolve the issues. However, any enforcement action taken by us will be proportionate to the risks posed and the seriousness of their behaviour. As far as the law allows, we will take into account the circumstances and attitude of the individual when considering what action to take.
