Adult Safeguarding Hub

The FFLM is currently working with NHS E&I on a pilot course to support experienced practitioners who are keen to learn or improve their skills in documenting injuries and writing reports for the purposes of an adult safeguarding enquiry. The first course ran in spring 2021 and it is hoped that once this specialist group becomes more established further resources can be developed to support collaborative working in this area of practice.

In the interim we are collating useful resources as below for those who are involved in, or may be interested in, this field of practice.
