Berkshire Safeguarding Adults

Policies & Procedures

Safeguarding Adults

Adult safeguarding means protecting people in our community so they can live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.

Our vision in Berkshire is that all agencies will work together to prevent and reduce the risk of harm to adults at risk of abuse or neglect, whilst supporting individuals to maintain control over their lives and make informed choices without coercion.

The purpose of these Policies and Procedures is to support staff to respond appropriately to all concerns of abuse or neglect they may encounter, providing a consistent response across the county.

These Policies and Procedures are updated regularly and practitioners are encouraged to refer to this online version rather than download and retain a copy.
