Safeguarding adults training

Safeguarding adults – basic awareness

All training coordinated by the Safeguarding Adults Partnership Board (SAPB) reflects a commitment to:

• Promote partnership and multi-disciplinary working

• Increase the understanding of respective roles and responsibilities

• Ensure a coordinated approach to safeguarding adults from harm / abuse.

The SAPB aims to ensure that sufficient, high-quality multi agency training is available and can demonstrate its effectiveness and impact on improving practice and the experiences of Adults at Risk and carers.

Safeguarding adults – process
This course gives participants the knowledge and understanding of their role regarding safeguarding adults at risk.  It explains the responsibilities of residential and day centre managers and also those of the social worker or care manager.

Making Safeguarding Personal

Making Safeguarding Personal is a shift in culture and practice in response to what we now know about what makes safeguarding more or less effective from the perspective of the person being safeguarded. 

The LGA and ADASS offered support to councils and their partners to develop outcomes-focused, person-centred safeguarding practice. They originally worked with 53 councils (including Wirral) who signed up to Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) in 2013/14 and guidance for other councils was developed based on their experience.

As part of the continued roll out of this way of working a conference was held in January 2015 for adult social care staff in Wirral featuring Sue Lewis, one of the National Leads for MSP, as the key note speaker.
View the power point from this conference.

Further events for partners and other stakeholders are being planned as part of this work
