Safeguarding Adults: Results from SCAMS audit

Earlier this year, SG adult safeguarding conducted an audit of how multi agency working handled the case of 4 adults who had experienced scamming.

As the Board Rep on the South Gloucestershire Council Safeguarding Adults Board for the Care Home Provider Forum Sam Hawker (Able Care Homes) and board member of C&SW has asked us to share the attached audit results concerning scams. 

 The download of the results of the audit can be found here; some of the case studies were quite shocking to hear, including the issue of ‘Romance Scams’. 

If you have any concerns at all involving clients in your care please report in the normal way to the CSO Desk.  Additional helpful information can be found at  Providers outside of the South Gloucestershire area can contact their local safeguarding team and signpost to local Trading Standards.
