​Protecting adults from abuse and harm survey

The Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board wants to find out how much local people know about how to protect adults from abuse and harm. 

They have launched a survey which is open to anyone who lives or works in Lambeth. Thye are particularly interested in responses from residents of Lambeth, those with care and support needs, their family, friends and support network, as well as health and social care professionals. 

The survey results will be invaluable in helping the board understand local awareness of adult safeguarding. The survey is open until 27 February 2018.

The survey can be accessed here.

Safeguarding adults is about protecting someone's right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect and about preventing the abuse of adults who might be unable to protect themselves. The Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board is a statutory board comprising a range of partners such as the local authority, NHS and Police, that co-ordinates safeguarding adults work in Lambeth.
