Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedure
This policy has been updated and now only relates to safeguarding adults. Child protection is covered in a separate policy. As such, the title of this policy has been changed from ‘Safeguarding Policy and Procedure’ to ‘Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedure’. Providers will need to ensure that local safeguarding reporting procedures are attached to this policy. Local authority safeguarding contact details and how to escalate concerns locally must be clearly visible within the policy and procedure. A new section has been added to your system details requiring you to state the name of your Safeguarding Adult Lead.
