An APR review was commissioned by NWSAB on the recommendation of the APR sub group, and in accordance with the guidance for APR’s, and is available to access via the documents library.
The following guides have been developed and are available to access via the documents library:
- Duty to report
- S126 Enquires
- Evidencing difficult decision making.
The purpose of this practice guide is to ensure a sensitive and professional multi-agency response to the management of complaints arising from the functioning of North Wales Safeguarding Adult Safeguarding Board’s multi-agency adult at risk processes.
Elder abuse can be defined as “a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person”.
In relation to immediate dangers contact the Police. An Adult Safeguarding Report should also be completed (see the NWSB website for further details).
The UK Government defines domestic abuse as: “any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.
Domestic abuse is a violation of human rights; an adverse childhood experience; and can impact negatively on children’s wellbeing, achievements, and life chances.
