Those enquiries where an adult does not meet all of the Section 42 criteria but the local authority considers it necessary and proportionate to have a safeguarding enquiry. Whilst each local authority has the jurisdiction to decide what Safeguarding activity they undertake for adults who do not meet the Section 42 criteria, some examples could include safeguarding to promote an individual's well-being as related to the areas in Section 1 of the Care Act, or for carers who do not qualify for Section 42.
