Code: PCC/21/348 Safeguarding in a Strength Based Way (For all ASC Staff)

Safeguarding in a Strength Based Way (All ASC PCC Staff)

Target group: Basic awareness course for all ASC staff.


Aim: A strengths-based approach to adult safeguarding goes beyond a focus on the person’s vulnerability to engaging in conversations which focus on the service user’s strengths and resilience, and which identify the outcomes that the person wants to achieve for themselves to promote their wellbeing and stay safe. It also involves identifying the strengths and resources in the wider family and community that can build resilience for the person and reduce the risk of harm. Strengths-based safeguarding is underpinned by the six principles of adult safeguarding.

Please add the date into your calendar.
