What is 'Safeguarding Adults'? - All organisations in Wolverhampton are committed to preventing the abuse or neglect of adults (particularly those in need of care and support) and promoting their well-being. This is known as 'Adult Safeguarding'.
How is this co-ordinated? - A partnership of organisations called Wolverhampton Safeguarding Adults Board works closely together to make sure that adults with care and support needs are teated fairly, able to protect themselves, and / or be protected from abuse and neglect.
How do we work? - All organisations work to the same values, principles, policy and procedures (shared by all areas in the West Midlands) including promoting the well-being of adults with care and support needs; putting service-users at the centre of all adult safeguarding processes; and making services personal to each individual. These principles are also the ones that underpin the Care Act 2014.
How are the people being helped involved in decision-making? - Organisations and their staff will listen carefully to, and take full account of the views wishes, feelings and beliefs of the people they are helping before deciding on any action.
