The Care Act 2014 has been criticised for the lack of a clear process for professionals to follow. With its emphasis on the personal individual approach to safeguarding, professionals have sometimes felt unclear as to how they should deliver safeguarding support.  

Written by a practitioner, with an academic background, Safeguarding Adults Together seeks to provide that vital guidance. Whilst there is an absence of process in the Act, there is still a clear set of safeguarding elements which when put together provide a framework of operation for professionals to become more effective in their safeguarding practice. Professionals tend each to look at a particular aspect of safeguarding, but it is only when the whole framework is demonstrated can practitioners understand how they can best provide good safeguarding support to adults who need their help.  This book provides the reader with that knowledge and understanding about how adult safeguarding works by translating the Care Act into practice.

This is a follow book to the successful The Social Worker’s Guide to the Care Act 2014 by Pete Feldon ISBN 9781911106685.

Safeguarding Adults:

  • provides a unique safeguarding framework approach that explains what adult safeguarding is and how it works.
  • includes memorable illustrations that explain difficult complex elements of safeguarding
  • is packed with practice case studies and examples to support understanding of safeguarding and application of knowledge and skill.
