The Care Act guidance states that Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) means that safeguarding should “be person-led and outcome-focused. It engages the person in a conversation about how best to respond to their safeguarding situation in a way that enhances involvement, choice and control as well as improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety” DH, March 2016 (para 14.15). This is in the context of a definition of safeguarding that embraces partnership and prevention to achieve personalised outcomes, addressing both safety and wellbeing alongside the person. (DH, March 2016, para 14.7).
This report provides a detailed description and analysis of the 26 MSP ‘temperature check’ conversations held in May 2016 (as part of a national programme) along with conversations which took place with the remaining 7 London councils in November/December 2016. The
report presents the findings and summarises the responses for all 33 London councils. It builds on this through reflection of conversations with and involvement of a much smaller number of organisations outside of local authorities. The report is intended to inform further regional development of MSP and therefore some information is identifiable by Council/organisation to support the sharing that will assist
development. To access the report click here
