Northern Ireland Adult Safeguarding Partnership

Most adults in Northern Ireland live independent, comfortable and secure lives, free from the spectre of abuse or harm. However, there are some adults who, because of their situation or circumstances, may be unable to protect themselves from abuse, neglect or exploitation. Health and social care agencies have a lead role to play in preventing, detecting and providing protection to vulnerable adults.

The Northern Ireland Adult Safeguarding Partnership (NIASP) and the Local Adult Safeguarding Partnership in each Trust area have been established to give leadership and direction to the work of these agencies.
