Learning points

  • What the legislation around safeguarding, particularly the Care Act in England and the Social Services and Well-being Act in Wales, means in practice.
  • Why two key aims of adult social care – personalisation and safeguarding – can appear to contradict one another, and how the Making Safeguarding Personal approach tries to address this.
  • What to consider when working with risk, and how to use professional judgment and make decisions confidently and appropriately.
  • Test your knowledge of safeguarding under the Care Act and self-neglect (only for premium partner organisations).

This hub helps you with paragraph 4, safeguarding, of the knowledge and skills statement for social workers working in adults’ services.
