Safeguarding Cumbria

Cumbria County Council has kindly shared their guidance on how self-directed support fits within the current safeguarding framework.

The guidance says that "we all have to make choices throughout our lives, some of which are risky."  Cumbria's strategy balances the ability through self-directed support to make choices with the duty of social care staff to keep people safe from abuse, and to ensure that choices are made with a proper awareness of risk.
