Safeguarding Adults

Local views

Responses from people using services and carers about safeguarding have been varied. For example some people were able to clearly say that safeguarding interventions resulted in improved services for them and the person they care for. Other people have said that they would have liked to be more involved in the process so that they could understand what was happening at all times.

Work is developing with practice initiatives with social workers to ensure safeguarding work is personalised and the person is at the centre of the intervention. Central Bedfordshire has developed a family group conferencing approach in safeguarding and has developed ways that people’s views, wishes and desired outcomes are captured as part of the safeguarding process.
