The Mental Health Commission and the Health Information and Quality Authority have written National Standards for Adult Safeguarding.

These standards show staff who provide care and support how they can work in a way that reduces the risk of harm to you and other people using the service.


The standards also tell staff how they can prevent harm from happening in the first place, how to identify if harm is happening, and when you might need extra support.
