North Wales Self Neglect Protocol

Pauline Bird

This new regional self-neglect protocol provides a framework of intervention drawing on best practice approaches with reference to the legal context to prevent adults who self-neglect  coming to harm as a result.

It offers guidance to operational staff and managers on how the needs or presenting problems of difficult to engage adults who self-neglect should be addressed. It suggests multi-agency partnership working is the most favourable approach to assessing and managing risks and for achieving engagement with the adult.
