New Publication: National Competency Framework for Safeguarding Adults – comprehensive version

25th October 2015

Living a life that is free from harm and abuse is a fundamental right of every person. When abuse or neglect does occur, it needs to be dealt with swiftly, effectively and in ways that are proportionate to the concerns raised. In addition, the person must be at the centre of any safeguarding response and must stay as much in control of decision making as possible. The right of the individual to be heard throughout the safeguarding process is a critical element in the drive to ensure more personalised support.

This is the third edition of this framework; it has been updated to meet the requirements of The Care Act 2014. This framework sets out minimum standards a professional should seek to demonstrate in practice when safeguarding adults.
