Making safeguarding personal
Published March 2014
This is the final report of a project run by the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) to undertake some small-scale development work in relation to Making Safeguarding Personal. It draws together the findings from four test bed sites and other councils that are using or developing person-centred, outcome-focused responses to safeguarding adults.
The findings in the report are based on:
- reports from the test bed sites
- reports from other councils and partners
- output from three workshops
- work with practitioners in the test bed sites
- a meeting with the Restorative Justice Council.
The project was funded by the Towards Excellence in Adult Social Care (TEASC) Project Board (the board steering sectorled improvement in council adult social care), the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and the LGA.
This report sets out the methodology used. It then describes the work carried out by the test bed sites and other councils that came forward with experience to share.
