Quick Exit

Safeguarding Adults Forum (SAF)

Come along to our meetings and help us shape the future of Safeguarding Adults in Warrington!

Safeguarding Adults ForumWhat is the SAF’s purpose?

It is an opportunity for local agencies to receive messages from Warrington Safeguarding Adults Board, escalate practice concerns and emerging themes, widely share learning to raise awareness, identify opportunities to work together within a supportive peer group, promote best practice and effective communication and support members to remain current in their understanding and knowledge of safeguarding adults. 

As well as challenging from the frontline, the forum will share learning. It is also the route by which practitioners can provide the voice of adults in Warrington to the partnership.
