How do we uphold safeguarding with so many of our ways of working dramatically changed due to Covid-19? This panel discussion webinar explores how to keep abreast of new and emerging forms of abuse and neglect given the challenges professionals are facing, and how to make sure the working practices of the foreseeable future can protect those who are vulnerable.

He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He has carried out major studies for the Department of Health on effective practice with adults who self-neglect and safeguarding governance. He is currently working on sector-led improvement projects on adult safeguarding and homelessness, and on making safeguarding personal for health and social care commissioners/providers.
