Protecting Adults from Harm (leaflet)
A Large Scale Investigation is a multi-agency response to circumstances where there may be two or more adults at risk of harm within a care service (this includes residential care, day care, home based care or a healthcare setting). The Chief Social Work Officer or Director will be alerted to all large scale investigations at the earliest opportunity
The purpose of a serious case review is not to apportion blame, but to establish whether there are learning points that can be identified from the circumstances of the case and look at how such points can be disseminated and used to improve practice.

Working together to protect adults interagency guidelines
The toolkit has a wide range of resources to use which have been developed and reviewed by a number of agencies and professionals.
This guidance on the child's or young person’s plan sets out the structure of the plan as intended in Getting it right for every child. The plan has been designed to help all practitioners and staff working with children and families in any organisation in the community think about the needs of a child or young person.
Our report describes how good they are at protecting children and keeping them safe.
This Framework provides a basis for all agencies to develop effective safeguarding measures. Through raised awareness, good practice and robust systems and procedures, staff will be supported to ensure the care and protection of children. The Framework is being issued as part of a wider package of developments on quality assurance and standards which includes the Charter and proposals for multi-disciplinary inspection.
The West Dunbartonshire Child Protection Committee Constitution will be ratified by the Public Protection Chief Officers Group, and will be reviewed by the Child Protection Committee on a three yearly basis to coincide with the production of the three year Improvement Plan.
The guidance provides a national framework within which agencies and practitioners at local level – individually and jointly – can understand and agree processes for working together to support, promote and safeguard and the wellbeing of all children.
