Unit 514 – Safeguarding and protection of vulnerable adults.

Safeguarding means proactively seeking to involve multi agency professionals in keeping an individual safe and promoting their health and wellbeing.
Following Lord Laming's report into the death of Victoria Climbié, the subsequent publication of Every Child Matters and the Children Act (2004), integrated working across services has become integral in ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are safe and protected.
Following an extensive inquiry into failings at Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, Robert Francis QC published his final report on 6 February 2013.
It told a story of appalling suffering of many ...view middle of the document...

Following the murders of Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells by Ian Huntley (a school caretaker) in 2003, the Bichard Inquiry was commissioned. One of the issues this Inquiry looked at was the way employers recruit people to work with children and vulnerable adults.
It asked whether the way employers check the background of job applicants is reliable enough. It also asked whether employers should be responsible for deciding whether a job applicant can be safely employed.
The inquiry’s recommendations led to the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, which recognised the need for a single agency to vet all individuals who want to work or volunteer with vulnerable people. The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is a non-departmental public body of the Home Office of the United Kingdom. The DBS enables organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors to make safer recruitment decisions by identifying candidates who may be unsuitable for certain work, especially that involve children or adults, and provides wider access to criminal record information through its disclosure service for England and Wales.
The DBS was formed in 2012 by merging the functions of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. DBS started operating on 1 December 2012
The ISA was created to fulfil this role across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. (Scotland is developing its own similar system, which will work closely with the ISA.)
When recruiting new support workers at AOHL face to face interviews take place and successful candidates must provide 2 references, 1 from last or current employer, they must also have an enhanced DBS check and are not allowed to commence work until all checks have been made and satisfactory. New staff members go through a robust induction in the 1st 12 weeks whereby they attend core training and have a “work buddy” who they shadow in the work place, regular 1-1 meetings are carried out with their line manager to monitor performance.
A legal obligation to report any child or adult believed to be at risk of abuse or neglect will be implemented in Wales in 2016, Health and Social Services Minister Mark Drakeford announced on 19th December 2014.
The new powers are being implemented as part of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, which received Royal Assent on 1 May 2014, and forms the basis for a new statutory framework for care and support in Wales.  
The proposals, which will reform existing arrangements for children and introduce new arrangements for adults at risk, include:
* The strengthening of arrangements for children at risk: these arrangements will ensure that local authorities are made aware of children at risk by introducing a new duty to report on a range of key partners including the police, providers of probation services, local health boards, NHS trusts and Youth Offending Teams. 
* New legislation...
