Safeguarding Adults - A Consultation on the Review of the 'No Secrets' Guidance

This consultation document published by the DH is about how society enables adults to be safe from abuse or harm. In particular, it asks how we need to change and develop the "No secrets" guidance - the key piece of policy guidance in this area - and how we combine keeping people safe with three sets of wider Government policy goals. These are the vision of increasing independence, choice and control for users of services; access to meaningful community empowerment and safer housing in wider society; and access to criminal justice for all.
