Multi-Agency Self-Neglect Framework
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
The Multi-Agency Self-Neglect Framework has been developed by members of the Lancashire Safeguarding Adults Board in order to ensure that all partners, including the county council, meet their statutory responsibilities. Self-neglect under this Framework relates to instances where self-neglect poses a significant risk of serious harm, injury or death and the individual is not willing to engage with services. However, a formal safeguarding enquiry for people who self-neglect is not, in the majority of cases, an appropriate or proportionate response.
This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.
The Cabinet approved the recommendation(s) as set out in the report.
Date of decision: 07/02/2019
Effective from: 13/02/2019
