Purpose – This paper aims to present a simple conceptual framework, outlining four pathways for guiding multi-agency involvement in different situations of adult abuse.
Design/methodology/approach – The essential elements of best practice for each pathway are described.
Findings – The four situations is a framework that, together with the seven-stage safeguarding adults pathway, has been evidenced through practice to provide a conceptual tool on which to base multi-agency activity in response to a large variety of concerns about safeguarding adults.
Originality/value – The four situations framework creates a straight-forward template that provides guidance to all concerned as to which organisations will be involved in the steps of developing the safeguarding pathways and what their roles and responsibilities will be.
