Event description

Description


The Keeping Adults Safe in Shropshire Board & the Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Adults Board are planning a joint event on preventing abuse and neglect to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2017.

The Care Act (2014) places emphasis on the need to prevent the abuse and neglect of adults with care and support needs as well as responding to cases of abuse and neglect.

We want to talk about prevention in its wider sense at the event including domestic abuse and older people, Trading Standards issues, the Safe Places Scheme, Recruitment and Retention and the Safe and Well visits carried out by the Fire and Rescue Service. Other national approaches to prevention will be considered and how these might translate to local practice.

Joint SAB Prevention Event Objectives:

> Understand the principle of prevention and how collaborative working contributes to this

> Describe the local context and what local support and resources are available

> Identify national approaches to prevention and consider how these might work locally

Clarify the Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin SAB’s role in prevention and local priorities

The programme will include:

> Safeguarding Adults Boards

> Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service

> Safe Places Scheme

> Domestic Abuse and older people

> Scams and Financial Abuse

> Housing perspective

> Building resilience, reducing social isolation

> Recruitment and local recruitment practice development

Stands: There will also be a wide range of information stands on the day, with a focus on preventing abuse and neglect.

Refreshments: Tea & Coffee will be available during registration and the networking break.

Dress Code: Please wear purple, the colour designated to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

We reserve the right to limit places for this event (we will contact you directly concerning this)
