explain the roles of different agencies and professionals that are involved in safeguarding individuals
Weegy: All people who work with vulnerable adults have a duty to protect them from abuse and to report all incidents, concerns or suspicions of abuse or neglect. [ All statutory, [ voluntary and private agencies in Tower Hamlets should be committed to ensure that people who are victims of abuse will receive support and protection from further abuse. When concerns, allegations or incidents come to light, it must be reported and “staff” must ensure that the alleged “victim” is safe. This may involve the emergency services if the victim has been injured. Discussions will then take place between the relevant agencies to decide on the most appropriate support and protection. All reports of abuse are closely monitored by the Safeguarding Adults Team to ensure that procedures are followed. ] ] (More)
