Safeguarding Adults under the Care Act 2014 E-Learning Aims
An Adult at Risk is anyone over the age of 18 who is receiving, or may be in need of, community care services by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness and who is unable to take care or protect themselves against harm or exploitation.
Everyone should be committed to a policy of Zero Tolerance towards the abuse of adults at risk and Adult Safeguarding is working to protect adults with care and support needs who are experiencing, or may be at risk of, abuse or neglect.
The Care Act 2014 consolidates previous Health and Social Care legislation and guidance with the aim of providing a consistent approach to Adult Social Care. The Wellbeing of both the person needing support and their carer is at the centre of the Act. It focuses on the provision of person-centred care, preventative support and integrated services. The Act provides a statutory framework for safeguarding adults in England.
