Hull Safeguarding Adults Partnership Board (HSAPB) have been in Hull since 2010, working with partner agencies to keep people safe from abuse and harm.

Their latest event has been set up for users and carers to raise awareness of the role of both the Safeguarding Adults Board and of the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).

Ros Smith, Safeguarding Adults Training Officer said,

“Our vision for Hull is that people are able to live life free from harm, where our community has a culture that does not tolerate abuse, works together to prevent abuse and knows what to do when it happens.

“In order to make this vision a reality, we would like the vulnerable people who live in Hull to come and meet us and our partner agencies to see what we can do to help them to lead a life free from abuse and neglect.”

The event is being held on Wednesday 25 March at Mercure Royal Hotel from 10.00am – 3.00pm (registration is at 9.30am) and there will be two separate information sessions to cater to the diverse audience. One will be a comprehensive overview of each specific subject area and the other will be an ‘easy read’ more simplistic view of each topic.

The interactive workshops include information on:

  • The Care Act 2014
  • The role of the Safeguarding Adults Team (MASH)
  • Safer Places
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney

 

The event also gives attendees to speak to key agencies who can offer advice and support. Lunch will be provided for all attendees, and people are welcome to attend on their own or with their carers.
