“Self neglect is one of the difficult issues for practitioners. Recent research by SCIE on self neglect will be included in the new Care Act and emphasises that working with someone who hoards or self neglects is very much about relationship building which can be a very long process.” Claire Crawley, Senior Policy Manager, Adult Safeguarding Department of Health 

The need to protect people from abuse and neglect is a key element of the Care Act 2014.  This conference focuses on the difficult issue of self neglect and adult safeguarding. Through national updates, practical case studies and extended masterclasses the conference will cover self neglect under the new Care Act 2014, the legislative framework for self neglect, safeguarding people who self neglect: the evidence and what works, developing guidance for professionals when dealing with self neglect and resistance to engage with services,  an extended session on hoarding, and an extended session on dealing with the underlying causes of self neglect working in partnership with service user.
