What’s new for Safeguarding Adults Week 2019?

We’ve partnered with The SAB Manager Network and The University of Nottingham. Our aim is to create a time where we can all focus on safeguarding adults – so we can be better, together.

Each day of the week we’ll focus on a different safeguarding theme. Expect to see lots of discussion and resources about the following:

  • Modern Slavery
  • Self-neglect
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Transforming Care
  • Safeguarding adults in sport and activity
