We are pleased to announce National Safeguarding Adults Summit which this year will focus on improving adult safeguarding practice: delivering a strengths based approach, improving decision making, user involvement and outcomes. The conference aims to bring together adult safeguarding leads to understand current issues and the national context, and to debate and discuss key issues and areas you are facing in practice, developing a strengths based approach to adult safeguarding.

“Adult safeguarding means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect”

Adult Safeguarding Network, NHS England

“The hand of safeguarding helps all children and adults who are at risk of harm or abuse…. To vulnerable adults it brings kindness, respect, dignity and support however short the hand that life has dealt them, and it protects them from harm and misuse from all and any quarter. It falls to us all in the NHS to give our hands to these endeavours.”

Dr Peter Green, Consultant in Child Safeguarding & Hilary Garratt, Director of Nursing, NHS England, Deputy Chief Nursing Officer, England and Chair of the National Safeguarding Steering Group
