What you can find out

Safeguarding Adults is a statutory duty for Councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities (CASSRs) in England under the Care Act 2014, in order to safeguard vulnerable adults from abuse or neglect. The data is collected directly from these councils, also known as local authorities. 

This dashboard gives users the ability to interact with aspects of safeguarding activity at national, regional and local level across a number of years from 2016 -17 up to the latest available data.
