Safeguarding Adults: Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures
Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures
The previous West Midlands Region Adult Safeguarding Policy and Procedures have been withdrawn. They
have been replaced by this working draft.
The new Policy and Procedure is Care Act 2014 compliant and has been formally adopted by
the Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board.
As a working draft it should be followed, but amendments and inclusions will be made over the coming months.
All updates to the policy, procedure and/or the local practice guidance will be posted here.
To ensure that you always use the most up-to-date versions of the policy, procedures
and guidance, we recommend that you access them using the website and not as downloaded files/documents.
BSAB Guidance for Managing Officers and Enquiry Officers responsible for conducting statutory Adult Safeguarding Enquires in all partner agencies
Section 42 Enquiry– Please note that this is local Birmingham guidance which is to be read with, and not instead of, the Multi-agency Policy and Procedures for the Protection of Adults with Care and Support Needs in the West Midlands as above.
Person In a Position of Trust (PiPoT) Protocol
This Protocol applies to all partner agencies of Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB), and organisations commissioned to provide services by them, so they respond appropriately to allegations of abuse or neglect against people who, whether an employee, volunteer or student, paid or unpaid, works with or cares for adults with care and support needs. Having such arrangements in place is not only a requirement of the Care Act 2014, but also a key action arising from the Board’s Serious Case Review into the death of A3.
