Chairing Safeguarding Meetings - Overview

This highly practical and intensive two-day course is designed to ensure that delegates fully understand what is required of them in order to convene and chair Adult Safeguarding strategy meetings and case conferences to best practice standards.

Delegates will gain a full understanding of their roles and responsibilities during the process, including the roles and responsibilities of other potential people and agencies that may be involved. All relevant safeguarding legislation and guidance supporting the process to successfully coordinate and hold safeguarding meetings, will be considered.

Over the course, delegates will also explore the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 to ensure that they correctly identify who should be involved in the decision-making process, whether it is the individual, or someone in a representative capacity. Delegates will also explore the legal basis for identifying and intervention where a crime has potentially been committed.

Role plays and exercises will help delegates explore complex case studies and enable them to put theory into practice using a client-focused approach to successfully convene, participate and chair safeguarding meetings.

By the end of the course delegates will have the skills to be able to successfully convene and chair Safeguarding Adult Meetings.
