Safeguarding adults

What does it do?

Safeguard against abuse.

Professionals that provide services have a duty of care. Sefton has a multi-agency framework for action to safeguard adults, which Health and Social Care Directorate in Sefton Council along with Merseyside Police, when appropriate, will take the lead in
investigating issues of alleged concern.
