The Safeguarding Process

In December 2015 Adass amended the 2011 Multi-Agency Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures.

The updated procedures support the introduction of the Care Act 2014 and lays the foundation for change in the way that care and support is provided to adults, encouraging greater self-determination, so people maintain independence and have real choice.

There is an emphasis on working with adults with care and support needs who are at risk of abuse and neglect to have greater control in their lives to both prevent it from happening, and to give meaningful options of dealing with it should it occur.
