Safeguarding Adults Investigations
In a relaxed and informal atmosphere, the role and responsibilities of all participants in a Safeguarding Adults investigation will be examined. Investigators are likely to be both responsible persons and/or safeguarding managers and this one day programme considers the processes for undertaking the effective collation of data/material to establish what has happened, and the evidence base for this
This will be achieved by using a ‘paper-feed’ case study:
– a group work exercise which begins with participants assessing an alert to establish whether abuse can be ruled out.
– the collation of factual material ? without investigating
– planning a strategy discussion and thereafter planning an investigation.
– conducting the investigation ? establishing who is best to gather information; the skills necessary; the role of other organisations who may have more power than you to gain access to information and the potential dangers and pitfalls with regard to contaminating evidence.
– interviewing people: a consideration of the challenges faced when conducting investigative interviews
– concluding the investigating; evaluating the data, and feeding back
