“Adult safeguarding means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.” Adult Safeguarding Network, NHS England 2017

“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, 2017

“Safeguarding adults is about the safety and well-being of all patients but providing additional measures for those least able to protect themselves from harm or abuse. Safeguarding adults is a fundamental part of patient safety and wellbeing and the outcomes expected of the NHS. Safeguarding adults is also integral to complying with legislation, regulations and delivering cost effective care.” NHS England 2017

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.
