The briefing is aimed at front line practitioners and operational managers in all organisations that have a role in safeguarding adults. It is aimed at leaders at all levels and local councillors. It can also be used by anyone interested or involved in safeguarding adults because ‘safeguarding is everyone’s business’.
Around the country many councils are working with people, providers of care, the voluntary and community sector and health partners to ensure that information is shared, and people’s needs met. In this paper you will read examples of where councils and other partners are working together to make this happen.
To mark the one year anniversary of our consultation, this new publication gives a number of perspectives on two broad issues: what is happening to adult social care on the ground and what life is like for people who experience care and support; and what the context is to the debate about the future of adult social care and where that might go next.
The LGA in collaboration with NHS Digital is grant funding digital innovation in social care, with projects ranging from new assistive technology to data analytics to predict demand. Apply now for the third wave of the programme – deadline to apply is 7 March 2019.
This publication demonstrates current examples of how councils support adult and young carers locally in a range of different ways from respite breaks to discount cards to tailored information and advice.
This briefing paper is based on work at two LGA/ Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) workshops in April/May 2018 on working with risk in the context of Making Safeguarding Personal.
