Adult safeguarding practice questions

Part of Care Act 2014

This resource uses a series of practice questions to identify a number of challenging safeguarding dilemmas. The questions and answers aim to provide guidance on how these dilemmas should be handled within the new legal framework of the Care Act 2014. It does not address strategic commissioning issues or discuss the role of Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs). It is relevant for frontline practitioners and managers who work with adults who have care and support needs and who may be at risk of abuse or neglect. This includes people in health, housing, the police, as well as in social care, both statutory social workers, and staff in the regulated and non-regulated provider sectors. The guide is part of a range of products to support implementation of the adult safeguarding aspects of the Care Act 2014.

Gaining access to an adult suspected to be at risk of neglect or abuse: a guide for social workers and their managers in England

Part of Care Act 2014

The guide has been created to provide information on legal options for gaining access to adults suspected to be at risk of abuse or neglect. The safeguarding duties under the Care Act 2014 apply to an adult who: has needs for care and support (whether or not the local authority is meeting any of those needs); is experiencing, or at risk of, abuse or neglect; as a result of those care and support needs is unable to protect themselves from either the risk of, or the experience of, abuse or neglect. The guide is intended as a source of reference in situations of uncertainty, rather than as a learning tool, laying out the potential routes to resolution. Sections of the guide discuss: practical issues and principles in adults safeguarding; the difficulties and duties involved in gaining access; and the legal powers that may be required in gaining access. Links to information on the relevant legislation and case law are included throughout the guide.

Safeguarding and quality in commissioning care homes
