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.
