The Housing and Safeguarding Adults Alliance (HASAA) has launched a new and revised website (http://www.housinglin.org.uk/AdultSafeguardingAndHousing), hosted by the Housing LIN (Learning Improvement Network). Since we began two years ago, the number of materials posted on our original site increased dramatically, necessitating a drastic revision to how we presented them. The site now has separate links for legislation and practice issues.
Of particular interest to housing providers may be the example of another housing provider’s Safeguarding Adults’ policy and procedures. These have been provided via the HASAA by the Together Housing Group as part of the Alliance’s commitment to share good practice. Together Housing’s policy and procedures have been updated to reflect changes arising from the Care Act 2014, including revised definitions, types of abuse, ‘Making Safeguarding Personal’, making Enquiries, and Safeguarding Adults Reviews.
Everyone is welcome to copy, adapt and use these and our other materials (subject to acknowledgement).Go back
