One could be a client has dementia and to overcome this you need to know how to communicate with person and be able to give them ways to participate that they understand. For other barriers you could use physical disability, hearing impairment, and so on.

1) Someone who has raised an adult protection alert
2) Think about individuals who have been, or may be abused, what makes them vulnerable? E.g. dependency on other for care & support, difficulties with communication, having a learning disability, being trusting, wanting to please being islolated: not having friends & family to support them, look out for them, having drug or alcohol problems, having a lack of knowledge or understanding about acceptable behaviour, being unboundaried.
3) Have been abused or witnessed abuse themselve i.e. one parent abusing another, mental health issues or disorders, the feelings of power it brings, if financially abusing they may have a dependency on drugs or alcohol therefore need money to fund their addiction, or they may be in debt.

Hi, active participation is person-centred as it treats the person as an individual, it is about recognising an individual's right to participate in the activities and relationships of everyday life as independently as possible; the individual is an active partner in their own care or support rather than a passive recipient. This definition accentuates two key principles underpinning care: the rights of the individual and the independence or autonomy of the individual.
Examples can be anything that is part of everyday life, eg an individual being supported to make decisions & choices: what to wear, what & when to eat, what activity they would like to do (on their own or part of a group?)
Physical benefits including greater activity levels.
Increased independence and autonomy in what people do.
An opportunity for individuals in health and social care settings to have a say in matters of direct concern to their lives.
Increased opportunities for social contact and interpersonal relationships.
Encouraging involvement and self-awareness. Individuals become more involved in the community and more aware of opportunities and what they can hope for themselves.
Increased opportunities for learning and development of important skills, knowledge, education and employment.
Enhanced well-being, with increases in self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief.

I hope this also gives you some ideas, it relates to person-centred support & section 4 deals with active participation.
