Information for Care and Support Providers

Adult safeguarding is a critical part of everyday life in looking after vulnerable people in care/nursing homes or via in their own homes.

Many people in this group have care and support needs and that those involved in delivering that care give incredible support to those who need it. However, they also come across situations where there is a clear need for Safeguarding actions to be taken.

Sefton Safeguarding Adult Partnership Board wants to support you as Care Homes or Domiciliary Care agencies, in your roles by having specific links to information and resources that will help you in relation to Adult Safeguarding.

The objective here is to help add value to your work and we want to see this as a two-way relationship where you can add items of good practice or knowledge that can help fellow agencies and workers in this area.

We hope you find this useful and would be grateful if you could feedback on its content and value to you in your role.
