The Government recently announced on March 11th 2016 the new Safeguarding Statutory Guidance -Self neglect covers a wide range of behaviour neglecting to care for one"s personal hygiene, health or surroundings and includes behaviour such as hoarding. It should be noted that self-neglect may not prompt a section 42 enquiry. An assessment should be made on a case by case basis. A decision on whether a response is required under safeguarding will depend on the adult"s ability to protect themselves by controlling their own behaviour. There may come a point when they are no longer able to do this, without external support.” Care and support statutory guidance, Department of Health, 11th March 2016

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 Care Act 2014, meeting the new statutory safeguarding guidance in March 2016, 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.
