Self-Neglect 7 Minute Guides launched

Covid-19 and the associated restrictions are felt to have had an impact upon the increasing number and complexity of safeguarding concerns involving self-neglect that are being reported in the North East.

To this end, and in response to requests from front line practitioners, The North East Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) safeguarding adults network have recently commissioned and published a series of “7-minute guides” that highlight the key issues around aspects of Self-Neglect. 

The bite-size guides are intended to complement our over-arching Self-Neglect Practice Guidance and support front-line practitioners in their response to self-neglect cases.
