Abstract

This study of national safeguarding and personal budgets (PBs) data found no strong evidence to suggest higher levels of safeguarding referrals among people with Managed Personal Budgets (MPBs) or using Direct Payments (DPs) compared with all social care users. In the three councils studied indepth, there were similar
proportions of safeguarding referrals for people with PBs and those using council commissioned services. However, there was a statistically significant higher
proportion of referrals for financial abuse and abuse by home care workers among people using PBs.
