ACT has over two decades experience of working with adult services within local authorities and the third sector. As Independent Authors for safeguarding adult reviews we have a reputation for enabling services to be reviewed objectively. The audits allow for best practice to be captured and an opportunity to establish how well as an organisation you are embedding practice that ensures that fundamental safeguarding principles are upheld.
The recommendations from this have meant that the outcomes for many organisations have been to gain advice and support in the evaluation of the following areas:
- Policy and procedures
- Audits of existing processes
- Audit of investigations
- Advice to set up an internal safeguarding board for monitoring
Does my organisation need a Safeguarding Adults Review?
Ultimately, promoting open cultures and looking at lessons learned improves practice and supports a value based, person centred outcome focused approach to safeguarding aligning the organisation with current best practice while meeting regulatory compliance.
