Vulnerability Registration Service | Carers Trust
The person you care for may want to register with the Vulnerability Registration Service so that organisations that check the register, such as financial services, will know that they are vulnerable when they deal with them.
How the Vulnerability Registration Service works:
Once someone’s details are registered, the Vulnerability Registration Service will make organisations that take the registration into account are aware that the person is vulnerable and needs to be treated in an appropriate manner and with the right level of sensitivity. The service is available across the UK.
The service is just being introduced and so the number of organisations that take the registration into account will increase as they will need to introduce vulnerability checks to meet regulatory requirements from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This is likely to include more retail companies, utility companies, service providers using the service as part of their checks .
