Safeguarding Adults: It’s Everybody’s Business conference

Event date: 24 November 2022 8.30am to 3.45pm

Location: Central Manchester

At the request of delegates attending the highly successful Safeguarding Children events, Open Forum Events are pleased to be hosting the Safeguarding Adults: It’s Everybody’s Business conference.

Although safeguarding is usually associated with protecting children and young people, there needs to be robust measures in place to ensure the safety of adults who may be at risk of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation. Safeguarding best practice should be established to support adults who are unable to protect themselves due to vulnerabilities such as: being elderly or frail, have a learning of physical disability, suffer with a long-term condition or poor mental health, have an addiction, lacks capacity.

It is commonly regarded that adult safeguarding is everybody’s business, however, the Care Act 2014 put safeguarding of adults on a statutory footing, meaning that all organisations that encounter the public have a legal duty to have a policy in place.

This conference will feature an agenda of safeguarding experts, delivering a series of insightful and informative presentations, addressing some of the perturbing issues surrounding safeguarding and to highlight some of the preventative measures to minimise harm and share best practice.  Question-and-answer sessions will allow for delegates to have their say and contribute to the discussions, whilst informal networking breaks will allow for knowledge exchange and peer interaction.

Book today for the CPD accredited Safeguarding Adults: It’s Everybody’s Business conference to be at the forefront of professional practice and policy.
