Launch of Self Neglect Guidance for Practitioners
Liverpool John Moores University, in conjunction with the Merseyside Safeguarding Adults Board, has developed a guide for practitioners who are dealing with people who may be neglecting themselves.
The development was led by Elaine Aspinwall-Roberts a senior lecturer at the University. The content was based on a number of practitioner workshops held at the university, which were used to develop, edit and approve the final content.
The guide offers advice and options to be considered by those who are seeking to support people who are susceptible to neglect themselves. The guide is now being circulated across the Merseyside area as a free resource, which can be accessed here:
