Adult Services


If you are a Care Leaver identified as having complex additional needs in relation to your transition to adult life your Social Worker will discuss with you and seek your consent to complete a referral to Adult Services. A member of the Transition Team will then work alongside your Social Worker or Personal Advisor to undertaken an assessment of your needs which will identify your level of independence and your future support needs as provided by Adult Services. Safeguarding Care Leavers as Adults Tameside Adult Safeguarding Partnership Board (TASPB) recognises that the abuse of adults is a reality. TASPB do not believe that this is acceptable and are committed to partnership working to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect. TASPB will ensure that the safeguarding arrangements promote the adult’s wellbeing and that staff in their organisations work with the adult to establish what being safe means to them and how best this can be achieved.

Tameside Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)

The MARAC is a public protection process that sits alongside Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Adults and Multi-agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA). It links also to the Integrated Offender Management (IOM) programme which includes a number of Domestic Abuse perpetrators. The agencies attending the monthly MARAC meeting discuss adult victims who are facing the most dangerous situations of domestic abuse. We discuss cases at the MARAC where the violence is between boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, separated, divorced or living together or maybe, never having lived together. We discuss violence in same sex relationships. The victim may be female or male. We help family members facing violence from someone else in their family. The focus may be a victim of Forced Marriage or “honour” based abuse. We aim to piece together a wide picture of the family situation to assess just who is at risk of violence, abuse and neglect. We do not meet to discuss children primarily but we often highlight dangers facing children to help agencies to protect them. In some situations, we may discuss victims aged 16 – 17 years.
