Enquiry (Safeguarding Enquiry)

An Enquiry is the action taken or instigated by the local authority in response to a concern that abuse or neglect may be taking place. An enquiry could range from a conversation with the individual to a more formal multi-agency arrangement. The purpose of an enquiry is to decide whether or not the local authority or another organisation, or person, should do something to protect them from any actual or risk of abuse or neglect.
