The evaluation report by Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA) was published last week and is now available on the LGA website and the Knowledge Hub Making Safeguarding Personal webpage. This evaluation aimed to find out the impact of using a Making Safeguarding Personal approach on:
- outcomes for people using safeguarding services
- the impact of the approach on ways of working and professional culture in safeguarding
- partnership working and culture change
The evaluation contributes to understanding whether the approach is working, and if so, how. It focuses both on the process and the outcomes that the approach has led to across England. It also looks at what further support would be needed to ensure consistent implementation and makes some recommendations for future work.
