Adult Safeguarding & Homelessness - A seminar with Dr Adi Cooper

The Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) is pleased to welcome Dr Adi Cooper to Norfolk to deliver a seminar on adult safeguarding and homelessness.

The seminar will take place on:

Wednesday 8 January 2020, between 2.30 and 4pm at the Elizabeth Fry Building 01.02 (Ground Floor), University of East Anglia, Norwich Research Park, Norwich, NR4 7TJ

There is evidence of increasing numbers of homeless people experiencing abuse, exploitation and neglect, escalating health and care needs, and reduced life expectancy for people living on the streets or in hostels. At a national level the rough sleeping strategy (2018) has raised the profile of rough sleepers and the government's commitment to end this by 2027. Whilst not everyone who is sleeping rough or living in a hostel for the homeless would have care and support needs and be eligible for adult safeguarding, there is considerable overlap.

Areas explored will include what facilitates good practice and what barriers exist across four domains – direct work with the person, the team around the person, the organisations around the team, and the contribution of safeguarding adults boards and other governance arrangements.

This FREE* seminar gives you the opportunity to hear some of the early lessons learnt from the workshops and what the next steps will be. Early booking for this seminar is strongly advised.
