Safeguarding Investigation? Talk to Ridouts

Section 42 safeguarding enquiries can lead to difficult and protracted investigations.

Providers can find themselves on the periphery and often provided with little information.

Service users can be removed, embargoes imposed and reputations damaged.

Ridouts can help you to challenge unfounded allegations.

We can assist health and social care providers:

  • to secure early and full disclosure of allegations;
  • to present evidence to challenge allegations, where necessary;
  • challenge embargoes/suspension of placements and cancellation of contracts;
  • challenge procedurally unfair processes and procedures.

We work with you to understand key concerns and address them to help bring investigations to a swift conclusion.
