Adult Safeguarding and Homelessness Briefing published

bulletin 5

The Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Service (ADASS) have published Adult Safeguarding and Homelessness – a briefing on positive practice.

The purpose of this briefing is to assist senior leaders, such as members of Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs), as well as commissioners, practitioners and operational managers who are working across relevant sectors and agencies in this field, to support people who are homeless and at risk of or experiencing abuse or neglect. This is a complex area of safeguarding adults’ practice. It requires an integrated whole system response. The intention is that the briefing will support and improve practice and encourage debate about policy and service development.
