About this Event

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult’s wellbeing is promoted including, where appropriate, having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action.’ DH 2014. Making Safeguarding Personal (ADASS, 2014) practice guidance has influenced the Care Act and indicates a shift in the culture of safeguarding adults. We must involve the adult ‘experiencing, or at risk of, abuse or neglect’ in decisions about their safeguarding. ‘Organisations should always promote the adult’s wellbeing in their safeguarding arrangements. People have complex lives and being safe is only one of the things they want for themselves. Professionals should work with the adult to establish what being safe means to them and how that can be best achieved. Professionals and other staff should not be advocating “safety” measures that do not take account of individual well-being, as defined in Section 1 of the Care Act.’ DH 2014.

In June 2020 the Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and Isle of Wight Safeguarding Adults Boards updated their Adult Safeguarding Policy, Process and Guidance document June 2020 and in October 2020 the additional framework ‘A Multi-agency framework to support decision making in relation to adult safeguarding concerns’ was added, along with the LGA and ADASS framework published in September 2020.
