ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views regarding the adult protection procedures in Great Britain. The author notes that safeguarding adults procedures and support are useless because cases are usually dismissed due to the victim's unreliable witness. The author hopes that the proposed safeguarding adults board would be given the power to take action on complains and prioritize adult protection.
