2019 SAB conference:
On 23 May 2019 the Safeguarding Adults Board hosted a conference at the Pavilion, Royal Cornwall Showground. Over 120 delegates attended the conference including multi agency frontline practitioners, managers, commissioners, strategic leaders.
The theme of the conference was self neglect, with keynote speakers and workshops from professional organisations including Research in Practice for Adults. The conference provided an opportunity for delegates to learn about working differently with people who self neglect.
