Safeguarding training for Managers and Leaders in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly  Safeguarding Adults Board (CIoS SAB) has commissioned this training to support our partners and local agencies to meet the competencies agreed within the multi-agency Competency Framework

Following the Safeguarding training for Managers and Leaders, it is expected that attendees will have demonstrable knowledge and skills in managing safeguarding concerns in a person-centred way, ensuring their teams work positively to safeguard adults who may be at risk of harm within their individual practice, systems, training, cultures and policies and procedures.

The above training is currently in the tendering process and the anticipated start date will be September 2023.

'Lunch and Learn' Workshops - Coming soon - dates to be confirmed in August 2022

Lunch and Learn workshops are arranged by the SAB Learning and Development Subgroup as one of the mechanisms to share the themes and learning from SAB activities. These are usually shorter sessions with a view to making them accessible to professionals who may have limited capacity to attend workshops and conferences. 

1. Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 

The sessions will focus on the application of the five Mental Capacity Act (MCA) principles in practice. A number of cautionary practice examples will be presented to demonstrate when the act has been misinterpreted or wrongly applied. The aim is to support practitioners to build confidence and understanding of how they should be using MCA within day-to-day practice and how they can avoid making the same mistakes. The session is delivered by Paul Wilkins who utilises his 15 years of close working with the MCA in order to demonstrate that at its heart this legislation is not as complex as many seem to believe.

2. Self-Neglect 

Self-Neglect continues to be one of the most referred categories of abuse in Cornwall.

Anyone working with vulnerable adults needs to have an understanding of self-neglect and the complex issues that can impact a persons ability to make decisions. This training will cover the identification and recognition of self-neglect behaviours, the threshold for intervention, and tools for the assessment of risk. The workshop will consider how to support people who neglect themselves, the multi-agency processes in place, and an overview of the Safeguarding Adults Board’s work on addressing self-neglect in the Cornwall.

3. Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP)

Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) is essential to all safeguarding work. This programme emphasises that safeguarding adults should be person centred and outcomes focused. It advocates a move away from a process driven approach, to ones centred on conversations with people about what they think needs to happen and want to achieve. Alongside the six key Safeguarding principles, this session will support practitioners to reflect on how they can apply MSP within their day-to-day practice.
