From Getting the Basics Right to Applying the Care Act and Criminal Investigations
Regular price £19.99
Regular price Sale price £19.99
This new manual provides a clear, comprehensive overview of the responsibilities of professionals in relation to safeguarding adults, and how to implement these principles in frontline practice.

The Care Act 2014 sets out a legal framework for how local authorities should protect adults at risk of abuse and neglect. However, the law can be complex and difficult to interpret. This straightforward manual aims to help managers, practitioners and trainers to work through the whole safeguarding process, from the very basics to the complexities of multi-agency collaboration and criminal investigation.

It offers a step-by-step guide to safeguarding adults, including case studies to recognise how to put specific safeguarding principles into practice, tools for assessing risk, and tips for implementing person-centred and strength-based practice.

Press Reviews

  • David Gaylard, Snr Lecturer in Social Work, The University of Chichester

    A welcomed addition that will assist in the understanding of the ever-increasing complexities and multiagency challenges of working within the field of adults at risk during times of austerity. The text certainly complements an emerging readership so ideal for any social work academic or policy researcher, practice educator, staff trainer, experienced or newly-qualified practitioners working within adult health and social care statutory or provider services. Each chapter covers key areas of core knowledge, practice, skills, values and principles that assist in effective person-centred interventions and outcomes. The book is well-structured with each incremental chapter written in a clear, accessible style supplemented by summarised key points, applied case studies, tables and diagrams devised by a competent practitioner-author. I will certainly be adding this text to my safeguarding modular recommended reading lists.
