The governance of adult safeguarding: findings from research into safeguarding adults boards

The report was commissioned by the Department of Health. Safeguarding adults is a multiagency responsibility and the guidance relating to it (No secrets, DH, 2000) has been subject to public and political scrutiny. Under the guidance, local authorities were encouraged to consider structures for interagency collaboration and it is these that have become known as Safeguarding Adults Boards. The report looks at how the boards have been structured, their membership and their strategic goals, vision and purpose.

Social care research capacity consultation

The four central governments of the UK, with the support of the Economic and Social Research Council, asked SCIE to conduct a UK-wide consultation on how to increase social care research capacity. This consultation provides a picture of the views of people concerned about, or who have a stake in, the infrastructure for social care research and development. The report recommendations identify key issues in the consultation that need to be taken into account in strengthening research capacity and in coordinating developments across the UK.

Outcomes-focused services for older people

This knowledge review includes a review of research evidence on the outcomes valued by older people and the factors that facilitate and inhibit achieving these outcomes. It also contains a postal survey of localities and social services managers in England and Wales known to be interested in developing outcomes-focused approaches to older people's services; and in-depth studies in six localities.

Managing risk and minimising mistakes in services to children and families

This report focuses specifically on reducing risk in services to children and families by identifying and learning from near misses in children's services. It aims to start a debate about the management of risk at an organisational level and to support the introduction of the Children Act 2004 in England and Wales and the development of Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs).
