Achieving the Best Outcomes from Safeguarding Adults Meetings

Course Outline

Safeguarding adults is an essential and complex part of our work. The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services has reported in 2009 a rising number of safeguarding adults concerns. Well informed, and properly tested decision making is essential in these circumstances. The Safeguarding Adults Strategy meeting provides a valuable opportunity for this, and is a key part of the Safeguarding process.

Chairing Safeguarding Adults Strategy Meetings is a half day course that aims to equip those chairing Strategy Meetings with clarity on their role, and advice and guidance on best practice, so that the most effective safeguarding outcomes are realised.

The course is delivered and facilitated by a trainer who has over twelve years experience of multi-agency working, who has very extensive experience of chairing Safeguarding Strategy Meetings, and remains in practice.

Who is the course aimed at?

The course is primarily for those colleagues who may be asked to Chair Safeguarding Strategy Meetings. Additionally it will be of benefit for those colleagues who are responsible for managing those who chair meetings, or, for those who are responsible for the strategic arrangements of which Strategy Meetings are part.

The course will also be useful for colleagues who wish to enhance their own knowledge of this area so that they can gain maximum value as a delegate.

The content and context of the sessions can be adapted to suit requirements (for example for more complex or institutional scenarios, or, for a variety of practice areas including older people, learning disabilities and mental health).
