The Straightforward Guide to Safeguarding Adults

From Getting the Basics Right to Applying the Care Act and Criminal Investigations

This new manual provides a clear, comprehensive overview of the responsibilities of professionals in relation to safeguarding adults, and how to implement these principles in frontline practice.

The Care Act 2014 sets out a legal framework for how local authorities should protect adults at risk of abuse and neglect. However, the law can be complex and difficult to interpret. This straightforward manual aims to help managers, practitioners and trainers to work through the whole safeguarding process, from the very basics to the complexities of multi-agency collaboration and criminal investigation.

It offers a step-by-step guide to safeguarding adults, including case studies to recognise how to put specific safeguarding principles into practice, tools for assessing risk, and tips for implementing person-centred and strength-based practice.
