Protect from abuse, Respect and  Dignity,

The City and Hackney Safeguarding Adult Board (CHSAB) is committed to increasing safeguarding awareness amongst residents and frontline community groups.


Neighbours, service users, carers, the faith sector and frontline organisations play a key role in raising awareness around adult safeguarding. The CHSAB has a pool of trained safeguarding champions that are on standby to deliver an introduction session for up to 90 minutes in a community setting.

 The safeguarding champions can deliver awareness sessions during the day, in the evenings or on Saturday.

 The awareness sessions will;

         i.            cover key safeguarding areas

       ii.            types of abuse

      iii.            the 6 principles of the Care Act 2014

    iv.            provide an insight in to who is affected

      v.            help people to develop an understanding of how to identify the signs of abuse

    vi.            know how to protect residents and users

   vii.            Highlight who to contact to make the right referrals in time to make a difference.


Participants will have an opportunity to ask key questions about safeguarding.

Everyone is welcome to attend the raising awareness training. CHSAB is keen to hear from micro and small groups affected by poverty and inequality. We encourage organisations that support the following service users and residents that are affected by poverty inequality and disadvantage to take part in our raising Safeguarding awareness session;  older people, Asian, African & Caribbean communities and refugee communities are in need.  We are keen to work with frontline micro, small and the faith sector.
