Adult Safeguarding Alert

An adult safeguarding alert is the term used to describe the reporting of suspicions or allegations of harm or abuse of a person who is an 'adult at risk'  (see definition of  'Adult at Risk') to Adult Social Care Services

Once an alert has been made, Adult Social Care Services will undertake initial checks and assess the seriousness of the information before coming to a decision about whether to the concerns identified in the alert should be investigated under the Adults Safeguarding Procedures and if so an Adult Safeguarding Investigation would begin at this point.
