It is definately a title I would recommend to students or newly qualified social workers with little practice knowledge of safeguarding adults in order to gain a better understanding of this area of social work.
This is very good book, and one of the few texts available one this subject. It is well written and gives a clear perspective of adult safeguarding from a social care viewpoint
Very easy manageable book that breaks down all the areas in safegaurding. Would highly recommend for level 3 learners and higher.
