Safeguarding and self-neglect
Sussex multi-agency procedures to support adults who self-neglect
The Sussex Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures have been revised in January 2019 to include an updated section on self-neglect. The procedures take account of learning from Safeguarding Adults Reviews involving cases of self-neglect and set out a framework for collaborative multi-agency working within Sussex when working with adults who are self-neglecting.

A briefing has also been produced to provide an overview of the revised self-neglect procedures, which is available here.
Agenda and minutes templates have also been developed for use in meetings relating to adults who are self-neglecting.
