Adult safeguarding procedures

Adult safeguarding procedures

The Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent adult safeguarding enquiry procedures provide guidance on how the abuse of adults with care and support needs will be responded to.

The Care Act, 2014, establishes a duty on local authorities to make an enquiry to decide whether action should be taken whenever it appears that an adult with care and support needs is experiencing abuse or is at risk of abuse.

These procedures relate to matters concerning the abuse and exploitation and are not invoked simply in response to a perception of general vulnerability.

For further information on the Adult Safeguarding procedures please see the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Partnership Adult Safeguarding Board website.
