Safeguarding policies and procedures

Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults

The West Midlands region recognise that the main statutory agencies need to work together to promote safer communities and to deal with actual or suspected abuse.

Dudley, in collaboration with other local authorities within the region, has adopted these procedures recognising that a consistent approach will help to achieve this.
The procedures detail how the local authority and partner agencies will work together to fulfil the duties of the Care Act. It sets out how adult Safeguard concerns will be responded to when it appears to the local authority that an adult with care and support needs is experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, abuse or neglect.
