Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During the coronavirus pandemic safeguarding remains a priority. If you have any concerns we advise that you follow the appropriate process as normal.

All face to face multi-agency safeguarding training courses have been suspended.

A core function of the Board is to keep a close eye on performance and to support partner activity. During this period of unprecedented uncertainty, we recognise that there will need to be constructive consideration of any adjustments to care and support arrangements put into place for vulnerable adults. We’ll continue to perform our duties.

Whilst it’s likely that some of our team will be tasked to support front door services, this will be alongside dealing with the Safeguarding Unit and Board priorities.

Adult abuse or neglect

Do not ignore it.
