Skills for Care is interested in finding out more about the views and experiences of the people using care and support services, carers and family of those using care and support services, as well as the adult social care workforce; in responding to cases of self-neglect in the community.

For the purposes of this consultation we are using a broad definition of self-neglect that includes a lack of self-care, lack of care of one’s environment and refusal of support that presents significant risk to oneself or others that might alleviate the associated risks.

Thank you in advance for taking part in this consultation which should take around 15 minutes to complete. Your answers will remain confidential.

If you have any questions, please email marie.lovell@skillsforcare.org.uk

This consultation will remain open until 31 December 2013
