Despite recent legislation and a greater focus on multi-agency working, there remains a need for individuals across the professions to understand the various roles, responsibilities and liabilities relevant to the safeguarding agenda, and the part they should be playing.

Safeguarding requires professionals to work together to ensure effective information sharing and to support the individuals involved to obtain the best person-centred outcomes. But it can be difficult for individuals from various agencies to understand a different profession’s language and processes, which can lead to misunderstanding.

The review of relevant law and guidance gives the reader useful explanations and has been written in such a way that there is a shared language across the agencies.

This book is insightful and has useful case studies. It will not replace local policies and procedures, but it will provide a useful resource for professionals working in this arena with practical guidance when dealing with a safeguarding incident.
