The Safeguarding Process

In April 2019 Adass published amended ‘London Multi-Agency Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures’, which had been agreed by the London Safeguarding Adults Board.

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.
