Wales Interim Policy and Procedures for Protection of Vulerable
Welcome to the first Wales Policy and Procedures for the
Protection of Vulnerable Adults from Abuse.
This manual is intended to guide the safeguarding work of all
those concerned with the welfare of vulnerable adults employed in
the statutory, third (voluntary) and private sectors, in health,
social care, the police and other services. The manual was
commissioned by the chairs of the four regional Adult Protection
Fora in Wales to replace four regional versions. Representatives of
the Fora, plus the Police, came together to identify and draw
together into one document the best of the existing four and to
update and refine the available material. A draft version was
issued for consultation and over forty responses were received from
a wide range of organisations and individuals. Amendments were made
in the light of their corrections and suggestions.
