Adult Safeguarding: Everyone’s Responsibility

Commissioned by Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board (LSAB), Voluntary Centre Services led this countywide third sector engagement programme which aimed to:

  • Highlight and promote effective safeguarding arrangements to prevent harm and reduce the risk of abuse and neglect
  • Increase awareness of adult safeguarding legislation, procedures and how to recognise signs of abuse
  • Provide information advice and training to ensure preventative activities and intervention are embedded within the voluntary and community sector
  • Upskill the sector’s workforce and ensure that organisations recognise their responsibilities to safeguard adults

Along with our partner Lincolnshire CVS, we developed and delivered a new adult safeguarding awareness training programme across the county between March 2015 – March 2016. The website and learning materials became part of Lincolnshire’s multi-agency approach to safeguarding adults, designed specifically for staff and volunteers working within the community in non-statutory settings.
