Back to Safeguarding principles and effective practice: adults at risk of abuse and/or neglect

Identifying potentially abusive situations and/or emerging safeguarding concerns

When identifying possible emerging concerns about abuse and/or neglect practitioners should ask:

Practitioners should share their concerns and any information obtained with their safeguarding lead.

They should also record these concerns and information obtained.

If the concerns relate to carers being unable to meet the needs of the adult, then ensure the carer receives an assessment in their own right under Social Services & Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, Part 3.
