The recently launched guide ‘See the Adult, See the Child’ from the HSAB and Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) is now available online, and can be downloaded here.
The guidance focuses on how to identify and respond to concerns about a vulnerable child or adult at risk. All agencies involved have a duty to safeguard adults and children at risk of abuse and to recognise the signs of abuse, along with taking action where abuse is reported, so please do take the time to download and read the guidance document.
In addition to the above, the Hertfordshire Suicide Prevention Network Newsletter has also just been issued which covers the important issue of suicide prevention along with useful links to further information.
