I am still working my way through this book as I tend to dip in and out. It is well written and useful as a quick guide however it would probably be more useful for students studying English law as this is the legislation that the book is based on. There are references to Scottish law but not enough for studying adult protection in Scotland. I still found the book relevant to protection cases though as a base line. I would strongly recommend checking which part of the country the legislation relates to prior to buying.

Great book, goes into depth about Protection of Vulnerable adults, giving a good in depth discussion about strategies, processes and what to do if an adult if you suspect abuse.

Also, gives good dicussion about legislation and policy in practice.

A must have book to understand aspects of safeguarding which is becoming more prominent in social work. This book is excellent for both students and practitioners. The examples and exercises included add reality to the text to consider who you would apply the theory in practice. A must buy

good if your exam relates to this topic but there isn't much in regards to personalisation which surprised me for a social work book
