Safeguarding Adults book

Working with Adults manual

Safeguarding Adults is for anyone who works, or plans to, with adults in any setting who are in need of care of support and who are unable to protect themselves from harm, exploitation or loss of independence, this book shows the need to offer them respect as citizens alongside protection from discrimination and abuse, which can result from powerful social processes of marginalisation, exclusion and stigmatisation. It addresses: how any of us can create and perpetuate the experience of being ‘vulnerable’; how we can address this as a matter of personal responsibility and in workplace cultures and practices; what we can do if we feel that someone is being subjected to abuse; why we sometimes don’t challenge other workers; why we should; and what happens when we do.
