Message from the Independent Chair
We are facing a period of unprecedented uncertainty and strain upon the services most needed to support those at risk of abuse and neglect within Nottinghamshire.
COVID-19 social isolation and safeguarding adults
Advice for professionals
Domestic abuse and MARACs
Social distancing and self-isolation should not be at the expense of protection from abuse and neglect.
Safeguarding Adults COVID-19 information
NSAB has collated a range of safeguarding adults information resources in response to the developing situation with COVID-19 and associated social, work, and leisure restrictions, these can be accessed via the resources tab on our website at safeguardingadultsnotts.org
Disclosure and Barring Service - Regional Safeguarding Outreach Programme
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) has recently launched a new Regional Safeguarding Outreach programme to focus on working collaboratively with safeguarding and recruiting organisations.
Level 1 Safeguarding Adults Awareness Training Pack
A lot of organisations will be stretched to capacity providing care and support services currently and may have to use volunteer or bank/ agency resources.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Board is following current Government advice and as a result, NSAB’s popular Referrer Training course currently has no dates set for this year.
Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board Manager
As our first bulletin since the appointment was made, we have pleasure in formally welcoming Ellie Joyner to the vacant half-time board manager role, who will be working with half-time board manager Emma Darby.
