    Explore your role in the process. Learn how you should respond to a concern reported to you.

We’ll also explore what you can do if a case doesn’t meet the local authority’s safeguarding adults’ thresholds, but you still want to support the person and the organisation may have responsibilities to act to prevent further harm.
