  • Social Care Institute for Excellence: Safeguarding webinar – Supporting the third sector to make good adult safeguarding referrals
    by conor.peart on February 19, 2024 at 10:46 am

    1 March, 2024 – 10:00 to 11:30An ongoing issue across the country has been the challenge for both third sector (charities, voluntary organisations, etc.) and the statutory safeguarding teams in making a good referral. Referrers will say “we don’t understand why it’s not been accepted” or “we hear nothing back”, whilst statutory teams will say, it’s obvious that “they don’t understand safeguarding” SCIE’s aim is to have a conversation involving colleagues from local authorities and a charity to share their experiences and to help identify what each can do to improve the quality of referrals.Shared Topic Areas: Health and Wellbeing
