Over the last few weeks the Safeguarding Adults’ Board and partners have been supporting the Council’s safeguarding campaign. This has been an important reminder that, even though we have seen the numbers of safeguarding concerns rise in comparison to last year, the majority of reports come from professionals and few come from the public. Therefore, this is an opportunity to highlight the range of abuse that can occur, particularly those that have previously been considered ‘hidden’ or which occur online, and to encourage people to report any concerns. There will be further messages during Safeguarding Week (15 – 21 November).

In both the children’s partnership and the adults’ board we continue to ensure that any learning that comes from safeguarding reviews is embedded. Sadly there is a national trend that similar themes keep on emerging in reviews – so this has been a real focus for our work. A really good way of bringing that learning to life is through the use of personal stories and it was great to listen to Jenny Molloy at the end of September who talked about her life and experiences of neglect. It was clear from the Q & A session that there was lots of learning for those in attendance. If you missed that then she is coming back to talk about exploitation at the end of November.

The Adults’ Board will also be holding a virtual conference on 10th December which will concentrate on the learning from Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs). One of the themes being covered is around self-neglect – sadly there continue to be vulnerable adults who are experiencing self-neglect and then decline support from agencies. The discussion will be an opportunity to draw on good practice and share learning from previous cases.”
