Living a life that is free from harm and abuse is a fundamental right of every person.

This resource is a tool for staff engaged in safeguarding adults at risk. It gives practical pointers to help people assess the risk of abuse, recognise it when it does occur and respond to it appropriately. It also helps put frontline safeguarding in a context of multi-agency, cross-borough work to prevent and investigate abuse across London. The resource supplements Protecting adults at risk: London multi-agency policy and procedures to safeguard adults from abuse, which guides the responses of all agencies across London involved in safeguarding adults at risk.
