It's Safeguarding Adults Week

17 November 2020

Everyone should be aware of the role they play in safeguarding adults and we should all know how to spot the possible signs of abuse, and the actions we should take if we spot any signs. 


Because of current COVID-19 Government guidelines, the Derbyshire Safeguarding Adults Board has looked for virtual ways to share important messages with professionals, volunteers and members of the public:

There's a video explaining the different types of abuse and neglect, how to access support and how to report concerns in Derbyshire. This can be used in training and team meetings and is available with British Sign Language interpretation and English, Urdu, Simplified Chinese, Polish and Romanian subtitles are available by clicking settings cog icon under the video.

You can find out more on the Derbyshire Safeguarding Adults Board website including a leaflet and newsletter. Or follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
