Local Government Association Safeguarding webinars

The LGA has announced the launch of a series of webinars to support the understanding of what constitutes a safeguarding concern. These safeguarding adults’ webinars are an opportunity to take stock and reflect on what constitutes a safeguarding concern.

There will be two parts to the webinars, the first part will be a pre-recorded webinar presentation which will give you a foundational understanding and introduce participants to quick guides and case studies which will be referred to in the subsequent series of live virtual Q & A sessions.  Prior viewing of the pre-recorded webinar is recommended and will provide added value to participants.

This series of webinars are aimed at: safeguarding strategic and operational leads in all organisations (including local authority and health providers and police commissioners, voluntary sector, advocacy, independent health and care providers, and homelessness providers/organisations, CQC, etc.).

If you are interested in attending a workshop, please send your expressions of interest to chip@local.gov.uk indicating which webinar you would like to join.
