This is the first national publication on the Abuse of Vulnerable Adults data return. Councls with Adult Social Services Responsibility were invited to submit the return on a voluntary basis in 2010, covering the collection period 1st October 2009 to 31st March 2010. Not all councils took part and of those which did, some only submitted a partial return. The report presents information on the data submitted, aggregated across participating councils, on referrals to Adult Safeguarding Teams and their subsequent outcomes.
This data is published as experimental statistics and as such we invite users to provide any feedback via the feedback form above.
