We are pleased to announce National Safeguarding Adults Summit which this year will focus on improving adult safeguarding practice: decision making, user involvement and outcomes. The conference aims to bring together adult safeguarding leads to understand current issues and the national context, and to debate and discuss key issues and areas you are facing in practice in moving forward with ‘making safeguarding personal’.

In 2016 an ADASS published a temperature check of implementation progress of Making Safeguarding Personal. They found that “there has been a substantial shift in the adoption and implementation of MSP by Adult Social Care (ASC) over the past year. Although only 6% of local authorities were evaluated as having fully implemented MSP, all had embarked on the road to implementation, with only 17% still at the development stage. The remaining 77% were currently actively rolling out MSP.” ADASS 2016. This summit will look at moving forward to full implementation and in particular focus on how we can change culture and practice to enable safeguarding to be done with, not to people – and encourage creativity and innovation in response to the wishes of and goals of service users.
