Abstract

At a time of policy review of adult safeguarding in England and Wales, this article provides an in-depth analysis of perceptions and dynamics of Multi-Agency Working (MAW) in adult protection and explores whether perceptions of its strengths and challenges vary in relation to the composition and decision-making processes of Adult Protection Committees (APCs). Findings are drawn from a survey of local authorities that took place during 2004-2005 as part of a wider study. The article highlights the complexities of MAW, the areas of tension for those with responsibilities for implementing it at local levels and the challenges arising from the composition of APCs.
