Referrer Training

Since March 2017, Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board has delivered referrer training to over 590 people from over 125 organisations providing care and support services within Nottinghamshire.

During this period, we have seen an increase in the amount of referrals leading onto a safeguarding adults section 42 enquiry, from 47.8% in 2016/17, to 55.4% by year-end 2017/18.

This is great news for the adults who we work with in Nottinghamshire, but we still have work to do to reduce the amount of referrals that do not lead to a section 42 enquiry, and identify the necessary, relevant, and proportionate responses for concerns that are better dealt with via an alternative pathway.

In the first instance, please make sure that you and your staff teams are using the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board’s Safeguarding Adults procedures and guidance for raising a concern and referring, and referral pathways documents when dealing with a potential concern about abuse or neglect of an adult at risk in Nottinghamshire.

If you or members of your staff team require referrer training, further details of currently available course dates for 2018/19, and links to sign up via Eventbrite can be found below:
