Professionals Only: Wigan Safeguarding Adults Board Annual Conference open

Posted on March 2018

This is a free conference for front line practitioners focusing on safeguarding children at risk. The conference will be held at DW Stadium on 29th March 2018 from 9.30am (10am start) - 4.30pm.

Wigan Safeguarding Adults Board is delighted to invite you to their fourth Annual Safeguarding Adults Conference.

This year we will be looking at the safeguarding implications over people’s life course. Part of this is the launch of the Deal for Safeguarding that promotes a shared vision of working in partnership with the public and that safeguarding is everybody’s business together with the launch of the Safeguarding Adult Policy and Procedure.

The Board are delighted to have the Afterthought Drama Group returning to provide us with the opportunity to reflect on “think family and transition” in the life course of an individual who may be at risk.

Other items of interest will be added to the agenda and we hope that you can attend this exciting conference that will cover key topics from a local perspective. 

Please pass this on to other colleagues who may wish to attend, but do confirm your attendance as soon as possible as places go quickly!
