Financial Abuse and Scams: Guidance for Councillors, Directors, Managers and Social Work Practitioners

The NTS Scams Team are currently focussing on establishing a partnership with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) to engage at a national level to improve local partnerships and operational delivery. Helping to raise awareness of abuse and improve safeguarding practices, ADASS, in partnership with the Local Government Association, Adult Principal Social Worker Network and National Trading Standards, has published guidance on financial abuse and scams, for Directors and people working in social care.

The guidance and other publications can be found via the following link https://www.adass.org.uk/greater-awareness-needed-to-prevent-abuse-of-older-people-with-care-and-support-needs-says-adass and is also available in our Resource zone.
