This section includes guidance regarding safeguarding adults at risk:
The LLR Safeguarding Adults Threshold Guidance seeks to provide practitioners with support in making a decision about whether a referral regarding an adult who may be experiencing abuse or neglect, may require further safeguarding adults enquiry.
The Vulnerable Adults Risk Management (VARM) process seeks to provide front line professionals with a multi-agency framework to facilitate effective working with adults who are at risk due to self-neglect, where that risk may lead to significant harm or death if nothing in that person’s situation changes.
Please refer to the Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures Website (Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland) for further guidance and updates.
A brochure has been produced which provides advice and information regarding safe recruitment of Personal Assistants:

Homeless or threatened with homelessness
