LGA Webinars - what constitutes a safeguarding concern?
The LGA is pleased to announce the launch of a series of webinars to support the understanding of what constitutes a safeguarding concern.
These safeguarding adults webinars are an opportunity to take stock and reflect on what constitutes a safeguarding concern. This multi-agency framework will enable you to take a shared accountability and responsibility for decisions and action through collective and transparent actions. There will be an opportunity to explore implementation of the multi-agency framework.
The framework connects with the framework on ‘Making decisions on the duty to carry out Safeguarding Adults enquiries’. Its purpose is to help achieve effective multi-agency outcomes that address risks to wellbeing and safety whether through a safeguarding response or through another pathway.
There will be two parts to the webinars, the first part will be a pre-recorded webinar presentation which will give you a foundational understanding and introduce participants to quick guides and case studies which will be referred to in the subsequent series of 8 live virtual Q&A sessions. Prior viewing of the pre-recorded webinar is recommended and will provide added value to participants.
This series of webinars are aimed at: safeguarding strategic and operational leads in all organisations (including local authority and health providers and police commissioners, voluntary sector, advocacy, independent health and care providers, and homelessness providers/organisations, CQC, etc.).
If you are interested in attending a workshop please send your expressions of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating which webinar you would like to join.
