Consultation on a new adult safeguarding power

The Department of Health is consulting on a new adult safeguarding power.

Our aim for adult safeguarding is to ensure there is a clear legal and policy framework, enabling the most effective local arrangements and practices to protect adults at risk of abuse and neglect.

The consultation will run from 11 July until 12 October 2012. Comments received after 12 October 2012 will not be considered. Please submit your comments by email to safeguardingconsultation@dh.gsi.gov.uk .
