Call for examples - Making Safeguarding Personal Outcomes Framework
The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) and the Local Government Association (LGA) have appointed Research in Practice for Adults (RiPfA) and the Institute of Public Care (IPC) at Oxford Brookes University to develop a Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) Outcomes Framework. RiPfA and IPC are now calling for local examples of outcomes frameworks to inform this work.
MSP is a sector led initiative that aims to develop an outcomes focus to safeguarding. The framework will provide a means of promoting and measuring practice that supports an outcomes focus for work to safeguard adults. This will include ways in which IT systems and processes can aid an outcomes approach.
RiPfA and IPC will work with the sector to develop an outcomes framework that gathers both qualitative and quantitative outcomes. It aims to help practitioners, teams, councils, Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs) and their partners know how they are making a difference to the safety and wellbeing of people who are at risk or who have suffered abuse or neglect in their area.
Call for examples
The framework development will start in December 2017 through to January 2018. RiPfA and IPC are calling for local examples of outcomes frameworks, including a range of current examples rather than just best practice sites. This includes providing data collection framework(s), details of storage arrangements and reporting methods. RiPfA and IPC will also ask participants to answer brief questions about the challenges and enablers in developing and using the frameworks.
The framework development will be followed by a ‘deep dive’ in February 2018 before developing and testing an outcomes framework in March 2018. This will involve phone conversations with key personnel in local areas to understand systems and arrangements in greater detail.
