Material from LGA workshop on working together for effective outcomes from safeguarding concerns - now available

At the end of November the Local Government Association (LGA) brought together a range of partners for a workshop on Working together for effective outcomes from safeguarding concerns.

The aim of the workshop was to gather views from across the country to try and develop a consensus on the application of the Section 42 criteria, given there is a huge range in the way this is interpreted across the country. There were a range of presentations including: 

  • users of mental health services
  • safeguarding and homelessness
  • provider perspective on safeguarding concerns
  • NHS Digital (on the national data on Safeguarding Adults (SAC) return)
  • NHS England
  • CQC
  • a Safeguarding Board
  • a Local Authority and
  • Police (focuses on the Poor Relation report)

Material from the event is now available on the LGA website. Click here to download the presentations.

Also available is a useful summary document setting out the difference between a safeguarding concern and a safeguarding enquiry
