The purpose of this paper is to summarise the Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) programme in 2014/2015.


Review of Council contacts in relation to MSP 2014/2015.


Councils participated at varying levels in the MSP programme during 2014/2015.

Research limitations/implications

An independent evaluation of the 2014/2015 Making Safeguarding work has been commissioned and will be published later in 2015.

Practical implications

MSP requires cultural, practice, workforce and technical changes. A range of challenges have been identified in taking forward the changes, which Councils are responding to in different ways.

Social implications

A person-centred outcome-focused approach to safeguarding adults can benefit people who are at risk of or experience harm or abuse.


MSP is a LGA-commissioned programme.
