Wednesday 20th November 2019

In 2018, IRRV Scotland ran a very well-received and useful seminar on dealing with vulnerability in a revenues environment.

We have had numerous requests for a further event and this updated and important seminar on 20th November is designed to provide an overview of the requirements to address vulnerability in collecting revenues, both statutory and advisory. The event will assist delegates in understanding the differing types of vulnerable person including medical terminology and behaviours.

It will also assist delegates in their dealings, negotiations and information gathering, whilst also dealing with the very difficult issues arising from receiving a suicidal disclosure.
