The right to take risks: service users views of risk in adult social care

This paper gives voice to service users’ fears and concerns about risk. It identifies additional risks to those commonly identified by professionals and policy-makers and explores how perceptions of risk and rights are significantly different for mental health service users.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) commissioned this paper as part of its programme on risk, trust and relationships in an ageing society, which aims to explore how risk features in the lives of adults who use care and support.
