Protection of Older People in Wales: A Guide to the Law

Discussions with those who work in the field of adult protection have clearly illustrated that many people see the current law on adult protection as a confusing maze.

While it is not a substitute for obtaining legal advice, nor a definitive statement of the law, it provides a helpful starting point. The guide focuses on older people, but is also relevant to those working with any adults at risk of harm.
