Safeguarding Spotlight: Homelessness

The Safeguarding Adults Board have conducted a multi agency audit to look at the safeguarding responses to homeless adults in Brighton & Hove. The audit assessed whether the needs of vulnerable people who self-neglect, misuse substances, have come to the recent attention of Police, have poor mental health and/or have had a recent health crisis, are being appropriately addressed. The key findings can be broken down into the following areas:

  • Multi-agency working & information sharing
  • Safeguarding & self-neglect procedures
  • Working with clients with multiple and complex support needs
