Safeguarding adults at risk of harm is a priority for Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council and its partners.
Every person has a right to live a life free from abuse and neglect. The Trafford Safeguarding Adults Board has a zero tolerance approach to all abuse.
These revised Multi-Agency Safeguarding Adult Policy and Procedures reflect the commitment of Trafford Council/Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and our partner agencies in Trafford to work together to protect people from abuse and harm
It is based on a shared view across the region of the principles that underpin the Care Act 2014; those of promoting wellbeing and putting service users at the centre of all adult safeguarding by making it personal to each individual.
All organisations involved in safeguarding are asked to adopt this Policy and Procedures in respect of their relevant roles and functions.
