Safeguarding Adults: Ideas and Resources

Here are some useful organisations for more information on safeguarding adults:

An invaluable document is The Care Act 2014 Care and Support Guidance  (chapter 14 Adult Safeguarding)

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides a statutory framework to empower and protect vulnerable people who are not able to make their own decisions.  It makes it clear who can take decisions, in which situations, and how they should go about this.  It enables people to plan ahead for a time when they may lose capacity.

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) replaced the Criminal Records Bureau and the Independent Safeguarding Authority in December 2012. The aim of the DBS is to help protect children and vulnerable adults by providing a first-class service to support organisations recruiting people into positions of trust. Only one application is needed for each person. This will give access to an instant online certificate, enabling employees to find out whether the certificate is still up to date. More information from:

The Care Quality Commission (England) regulates care provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies and voluntary organisations.

Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) is a charity that works to protect, and prevent the abuse of, vulnerable older adults.  It shows video clips of the main types of abuse as well as a helpline for those who are concerned about a vulnerable adult:
