WE REALLY NEED A LAW TO PROTECT VULNERABLE ADULTS

Comment 9th July 2010

As a practicsing social worker the level of abuse of adults and older people I have encountered is frightening. in the form of sexual, physical, emotional, neglect, and particularly financial abuse.

I apprectiate is difficult due to the rights of adults in britain, and there  are aspects of the mental capcity or national assistance act that can help; but social services have no overarching powers to protect these vulnerable people, particularly in cases where the police do not feel it warrants a criminal investigation. For instance, we have no powers of removal.

 

Why does this matter?

the current system leaves people open to abuse
