Wales Interim Policy and Procedures for Protection of Vulerable Adults

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.
