Covid-19 Response and Resilience Plan

Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board first published its Covid-19 Response and Resilience Plan in December 2020. 

The Covid-19 pandemic is unprecedented in living memory and the impact for individuals, families, communities and wider society is significant and will be long lasting. It has touched every part of our lives.

This plan was developed with the support of key statutory partners and sets out NSAB’s response to the ‘changed’ safeguarding adults landscape.

The plan is structured into response/resilience themes and is in two parts. First, themes identified for Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board, where we might expect changing or increased needs. Second, themes which NSAB will support other boards/partners with.

We asked partners to consider the following: It is vital that NSAB understands and responds to this ‘changed’ safeguarding landscape and in particular identifies what has worked well during the pandemic. Are there elements of practice that should be maintained going forward and if so, how will these now be integrated into practice?

The responses we received were then added to the plan. 

The version here was updated in February 2021 and has been used to inform NSAB strategic and business plans in 2021 and beyond.
