Recommended as a complimentary resource to our safeguarding vulnerable adults module. Very useful resource
I found this book easy to read and, as a practising social worker, it includes information relevant to current social work practice. It is definately a title I would recommend to students or newly qualified social workers with little practice knowledge of safeguarding adults in order to gain a better understanding of this area of social work.
This is very good book, and one of the few texts available one this subject. It is well written and gives a clear perspective of adult safeguarding from a social care viewpoint
