To ensure the safety and wellbeing of those adults with care and support needs at risk of abuse and neglect, it is important that the threshold for reporting is set at the right level. The aim of this Guidance is to assist organisations and practitioners in deciding when to initiate Safeguarding Adults Procedures.Download Essex County Council Safeguarding Adults Decision Support Guidance
Guidance on assessing mental capacity in different ways during COVID-19
An assessment of mental capacity is often central to decisions which follow, in Adult Social Care.
Knowing whether the person is able to make their own decisions (our starting point), whether they are making unwise decisions or whether in fact they lack capacity for some decisions is often a key component to moving forward.
These are difficult times and therefore require us to respond in new and creative ways.Download
