Friday 24 Apr 2020

De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow the conference on Twitter #safeguardingadults

We are pleased to announce the National Safeguarding Adults Conference which will focus on improving adult safeguarding practice: delivering a strengths based approach, improving 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, developing a strengths based approach to adult safeguarding.

“Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Every organisation, small group and individual should be aware of their responsibility, in work and society.”

The Ann Craft Trust 2019
