Consideration must also be given as to whether anyone else is at risk as a result of an adult’s mental capacity. This may include children or other adults with care and support needs. Whilst actions may be limited in relation to the individual themselves, there may be a duty to take action to safeguard others. Should there be a concern that a parent may be neglecting children in their care, concerns must be reported to Children’s’ Social Care: Local Safeguarding Children Boards
