Market Position – Safeguarding

Safeguarding

Wakefield Council has a duty to safeguard vulnerable people and has a responsibility to co-ordinate all safeguarding activity across the District. The Council has an Adult Safeguarding Board which is now independently chaired and Adult Social Care staff support the Board’s work, identifying and preventing risk of harm, investigating complaints and concerns. Across West Yorkshire, Councils have developed common safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure

all partners work together effectively. In addition, Adult Social Care staff also monitors all contracted care and support services to ensure that people at risk are effectively safeguarded and supported. The performance data for

2013/14 has seen an increase in the number of safeguarding alerts, from 1531 in 2012-13 to 2131 in 2013-14. The increase is replicated nationally and is associated with the national and local publicity to promote the awareness of adult safeguarding which will have contributed to a rise in alerts.
