Organisational abuse

Organisational abuse is stated in the Care Act (2014) as 'neglect and poor care practice within an institution or specific care setting such as a hospital or care home … or in relation to care provided in one's own home'.  There is statutory guidance to provide advice on the response to abuse and neglect in a regulated care setting.

The Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership has produced a comprehensive Managing Organisational Safeguarding Concerns Policy 2020 which covers treatment, care and support for adults in care homes and in people's own home.
