The Care Act 2014 includes statutory duties to safeguard vulnerable adults and children from abuse and to promote their wellbeing. The Care and Support Statutory Guidance sets out specific expectations of all agencies, and applies to housing and support providers, regulated care providers, and voluntary organisations, as well as local authorities and other statutory services. The guidance includes requirements to minimise the risk of abuse through robust risk management and support; to identify and deal with abuse; and for multi-agency working.
The primary focus of all safeguarding work should be to stop abuse or neglect wherever possible and to prevent harm and reduce the risk of abuse or neglect to adults with care and support needs. It is important to safeguard adults in a way that supports them in making choices and having control about how they want to live; to promote an approach that concentrates on improving life for the adults concerned, and to address the cause of the abuse or neglect.
The seriousness or extent of abuse is often not clear when the anxiety is first expressed. It is important, therefore, when considering the appropriateness of an intervention to approach reports of incidents or allegations with an open mind.
