Safeguarding in light of the Care Act: Leaders Briefing

RiPfA have kindly agreed to share this Leaders briefing with the Housing LIN.

Researched and written by Michael Preston-Shoot, it provides an excellent overview of the safeguarding provisions of the Care Act 2014. Although targeted essentially at councillors, chief executives and senior managers of adult social authorities, it also has relevance to managers in the housing sector who need an understanding of the new framework, what they can expect from the local authority and their own organisation's role.
