Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) is about ensuring that our professional responses to concerns about an adult who may be experiencing abuse or neglect focus on working alongside that person, rather than 'putting them through a statutory process'.
This shift in focus is at the heart of Adult Safeguarding under the Care Act (2014). It emphasises a personalised, simplified approach to adult safeguarding, which prioritises the individual's wishes and empowers them, wherever possible, to feel they have choice and control. The outcomes must be about improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety.
We want to ensure the principle of MSP is embedded in all that we do in Lambeth. Why not take a look at some of our resources to find out more?
