This Advice Note has been developed for ADASS members. It relates to the above framework developed on behalf of ADASS and LGA.  Related cross sector work will follow which considers the circumstances that constitute a safeguarding ‘concern.’ The aim across the two pieces of work, is to support consistency in appropriate referral of, and responses to, safeguarding adults concerns and ultimately good outcomes for people.

The Framework (and appendices) was endorsed at our last Executive and the Advice Note developed as a result.
