Event Summary

Join Westminster Insight’s annual Safeguarding Adults Digital Conference for your chance to gain crucial updates and practical guidance for the sector.

DoLS is due to be replaced by Liberty Protection Safeguards in 2023 and the Government recently consulted on a new Mental Capacity Act code of practice.

Following the publication of the 2022 Independent Report, Revisiting Safeguarding*, which set out updated practical guidance for practitioners, we will explore how to improve multi-agency working to reduce risk, protect vulnerable adults and identify and prevent harm and neglect.

Hear from keynote speaker Professor Michael-Preston Shoot, Joint Coordinator, National SAB Chairs’ Network, on the growing complexity of safeguarding work, and what will be needed to meet increasing need for safeguarding services moving forward.

Explore what ‘good’ safeguarding means, and the impact of ongoing reforms, such as the new proposals for Liberty Protection Safeguards. A career in safeguarding has become increasingly complex. Practitioners are facing new and growing challenges surrounding self-neglect and hidden harms. With safeguarding referrals also on the rise, understand the ongoing impact of the pandemic and growing pressures on the workforce.

Join Local Authorities, Safeguarding Adults Boards, Supported Housing, Care Homes and more.

Delivered via our bespoke interactive platform, attend live or watch on demand.
