Study to strengthen adult safeguarding responses to homeless and self-neglect

A study exploring how self-neglect is experienced by people who are homeless is being led by King's College London.  The study will look into how self-neglect can be addressed through strengthening local adult safeguarding responses.  

Concerns have been raised by government about the adequacy of safeguarding, why there have been so few Safeguarding Adults Reviews into the deaths of people who are homeless, and whether learning from these reviews is being implemented.
