Working together to safeguard adults with care and support needs

Making safeguarding personal

Making Safeguarding Personal set out to develop person-centred responses to safeguarding circumstances, by encouraging councils and their partners to develop a range of responses they can offer to people who have experienced harm and abuse, so that they are empowered and their outcomes are improved.

This included ways to ensure that outcomes can clearly be identified through safeguarding processes.

The pilot has now ended and the Care Act 2014 made it clear that all safeguarding responses need to be informed by the views and outcomes of the person experiencing, or at risk of experiencing abuse or neglect.
