ABOUT GATEKEEPER

The Gatekeeper Program is designed to assist vulnerable adults who may need help, but may be unable to get it for themselves.

Gatekeeper Program Introduction training informs members of the community about what any of us can do when we are worried about the welfare of a vulnerable adult.

Many of us have developed concerns about a person in the community, but may have been unfamiliar with local resources and/or uncomfortable with the idea of intervening in any way. This can cause us to do nothing because we do not know what to do. The results? Discomfort and maybe some guilty feelings, and continued exposure to a possibly unsafe set of circumstances for the vulnerable person. SWEAP wants to change that.
