Understanding Adult Safeguarding is vital for all working in social housing. In this webinar we will look at the six principles of safeguarding and take you through the key provisions of the Care Act 2014. We will also explore the practical steps that should be taken in order to promote adult safeguarding, be able to recognise and make effective safeguarding referrals and deal with local authority requests as part of a Safeguarding Adults Review.
