Staff information and training

Are you concerned about someone who may be at risk of harm or neglect?

Follow the Adult Support and Protection Reporting Harm Protocol and complete the Inter-agency Report of Harm Referral Form

Please note the change of name of the referral form to 'Inter-agency Report of Harm Referral.'  This aligns the terminology with the Reporting Harm Protocol and makes distinct a referral related to an adult at risk of harm as decribed in the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 from any other concern.   This change was agreed by the Adult Support and Protection Committee (ASPC) on 6 February 2017.
