WM ADASS has a well established Safeguarding Network that includes adult social care Safeguarding Board chairs from each of our 14 councils, along with strong links to the local Chairs of Safeguarding Boards.
The Network meets virtually bi-monthly to support the West Midlands Improvement Programme providing information, improvement and best practice sharing for activists across the region. It also aims to:
- help adults to be as safe as they wish to be, subject to full and proper application of mental health and capacity law and regulations
- promote social justice and narrow the gap in health and care outcomes for people facing inequality
- further develop and maintain a regional safeguarding adults’ network to identify and respond to the challenges and changing landscape
- help implement successfully the new Liberty Protection Safeguards arrangements
The Network is sponsored by Nigel Mimms , Director of Adult Services, Warwickshire County Council, and managed by Alan Lotinga, Safeguarding lead, WM ADASS
