In conversation with Alex Ruck Keene 22 June 2022

Those of you who have been associated with NSAB for some time will be aware that in December 2020, we were joined by Alex Ruck Keene, an experienced barrister, writer and educator, who introduced us to his work, and talked about mental capacity in the time of Covid.

We're pleased to say that Alex has kindly taken time out of his sabbatical to hold another 'in conversation with' session where the subject of Liberty Protection Safeguards will be covered.  There will also be the opportunity to ask questions.

Self-neglect & hoarding event #2

The person with lived experience and the multi-agency team around them

Tues 5 July 10.00-12.00

The most common topic requested by those of you who attended our first SN&H event in November 2021 was ‘the voice of the person’ – so for this session we have spoken with someone who has had lengthy input from a range of agencies, making a significant difference to her life.

Ms G agreed to be recorded to share some of her thoughts on what she experienced. This includes insight into what can lie behind hoarding behaviours, what other safeguarding issues may be present, and what things make a real difference to the person.

We also have some of the people who worked with Ms G, using a focused and supportive multi-agency approach that was tailored to meet her needs as well of those of the organisations involved, in order to achieve a safe and habitable home for her.

Aims and objectives

  • To better understand the lived experience of someone who may hoard or self-neglect, in their own words
  • To hear how the agencies involved worked together to achieve both necessary and most effective outcomes
  • To support the development of direct practice / strategy / approaches across Norfolk through more in-depth understanding of the lived experience
