In the September meeting, the topic was neglect and self-neglect - in ELSAP we discussed role of Lasting Power of Attorney and neglect, which led to some really useful sharing of information about LPA. In fact we created a 'top tips' sheet that was shared around to all the LSAPs a s a result.

We also talked about how partnership working really makes the difference – strong communication and networking, alongside pragmatic approaches - with numerous examples from the Eastern area.


In 2022 there were some really positive discussions linked to the topics - from the DHR Daisy there was a strong focus on promoting best practice across the area, maintaining professional curiosity so we really see carers; that we recognise adult children as carers, and financial pressures as well as emotional ones. The partnership were keen to support Carer's Week in June also.


In 2021 we talked a lot about language and communication, linked to helping us to have a common understanding. ELSAP created the wordcloud you can see in the image below. Each member wrote down words they associate with safeguarding, which were then made into the image. The larger the word, the more times it was used.
