This measure shows the proportion of people who use services who feel safe, and is calculated from data collected in the Adult Social Care Survey. The relevant question drawn from the Adult Social Care Survey is Question 7a: “Which of the following statements best describes how safe you feel?”

Safety is fundamental to the wellbeing and independence of people using social care, and the wider population. Feeling safe is a vital part of service users' experience and their care and support. There are legal requirements about safety in the context of service quality, including CQC standards for registered services.
