Safeguarding – Adults



In recent years, the subject of adult abuse has been highly topical and has had some devastating consequences.

Given the recent changes to safeguarding legislation (The Care Act 2014 and the requirements of the Mental Capacity Act 2005) and the impact of recent high profile cases, adult and elder safeguarding should form essential training across a multi-agency arena.
