Nicola chats with Jayne Wilson, Training and Development Coordinator and Lead Safeguarding Officer for Active Lancashire.
Jayne shares lots of tips for NGBs and Active Partnerships. She advises on how you can effectively work with your local safeguarding adults board.
The two also discuss the importance of accessible language in safeguarding. Jayne mentions how, initially, she found the amount of jargon and acronyms hard to understand.
Finally, they talk about how safeguarding should not be a box-ticking exercise. It must be focused on and tailored to the individual. When working with individuals, we should always ask: “What outcome do they want?”
