The ASC provides strategic and operational leadership and oversight in relation to adult safeguarding for an organisation or group and is responsible for implementing its adult safeguarding policy statement. The ASC should ensure that, at a minimum, the organisation safeguards adults at risk by:
Recognising that adult harm is wrong and that it should not be tolerated;
Being aware of the signs of harm from abuse, exploitation and neglect;
Reducing opportunities for harm from abuse, exploitation and neglect to occur; and
Knowing how and when to report safeguarding concerns.
