Adult safeguarding is a complex area of social work and requires the practitioner to draw upon many skills as they engage with the challenges of referrals, information gathering, multi-agency working and asserting the rights of the adult at the centre of each case whilst striving for the best outcome. The Adult Safeguarding Practice Handbook by Spreadbury and Hubbard is an attempt to bring focus to this valuable area of practice and aims to guide practitioners through some of the challenges that may be encountered in social work.
