In London local councils need to work together with the police and NHS organisations to promote safer communities and to prevent harm as well as to deal with suspected or actual cases. That is why the key agencies in London have come together to produce Protecting adults at risk: London multi-agency policy and procedures. It is their firm belief that adults at risk are best protected when procedures between statutory agencies are consistent across London. The policy and procedures will help improve inter-agency working, avoid people falling between the gaps in services, reduce duplication of work, gain a better understanding of safeguarding across all agencies, and ensure alignment of language used across agencies.
