Safeguarding performance summary

The report is intended to support the work of ADASS, LGA and other partners in improving and evidencing the effectiveness of safeguarding adults' practice and our future development work as part of sector led improvement.

This summary of a longer report circulated to Directors outlines work by the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) Safeguarding Adults Leads during 2011-2012 with regards to performance monitoring.

It sets out a suite of safeguarding standards and performance components that have been developed or built on during the year which may be useful in terms of developing work locally. It is intended to be complementary to new legislation.
