Research and analysis, Safe care at home review, a joint review led by the Home Office and the Department of Health and Social Care into the protections and support for adults abused, or at risk of abuse, in their own home by people providing their care. The review drew on the experience of people who receive care in their own homes, organisations representing carers, and statutory agencies including front line professionals.
The review developed a set of cross-government actions for implementing change over 3 key themes:
- Strengthening accountability and oversight mechanisms to better protect and support victims.
- Strengthening training and guidance so this type of harm and relevant legislative protections are better understood by front line professionals.
- Improving the data and evidence available about this type of harm.
