Multi-Agency Self-Neglect Framework

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.
