Please note: This event is offered free of charge by Halton Adult Safeguarding Board to staff working in adult social care across the borough. It will look at local policy, process and procedure and as such is not appropriate for attendance outside of area.


A range of people may be involved in supporting adults with additional needs to live their day-to-day lives. This session will provide staff, volunteers and carers (paid or unpaid) with the knowledge and understanding of adult safeguarding requirements and enable them to recognise their own responsibilities within this process.
