“Adult safeguarding means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect" Adult Safeguarding Network, NHS England

“The hand of safeguarding helps all children and adults who are at risk of harm or abuse. It touches the lives of children when it protects them from harm and neglect from wherever that comes; and it helps to provide them with all the chances needed to achieve the best a life can bring. To vulnerable adults it brings kindness, respect, dignity and support however short the hand that life has dealt them, and it protects them from harm and misuse from all and any quarter. It falls to us all in the NHS to give our hands to these endeavours.” Dr Peter Green, Consultant in Child Safeguarding & Hilary Garratt, Director of Nursing, NHS England, Deputy Chief Nursing Officer, England and Chair of the National Safeguarding Steering Group

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’ and a developing a strengths based approach to adult safeguarding.

“Evidence of strength based approaches leading to good outcomes for people can be found… in particular those involving safeguarding.” Chief Social Worker for Adults Annual Report 2017-18
