Liverpool City Council –The Procedural Framework for Safeguarding Adults Letter from the Co-Chairs of Liverpool’s Safeguarding Adults Board Dear Colleagues Welcome to Liverpool’s Safeguarding Adults Procedural Framework. We have recently been reviewing and updating the Safeguarding Adults process in Liverpool. It was felt that this was an appropriate time to update the existing procedures document to reflect the most current research and best practice. In Liverpool we have a strong and long standing multi-agency approach to safeguarding adults, the Safeguarding Adults Board having been established in 2001. Board membership is made up of organisations who work directly with those who may be vulnerable to abuse. The focus of the Board is to ensure that the safeguarding process is robust, allowing people to live without fear, be treated with dignity and have their choices respected. We know that the most effective way of protecting people is through a joint approach. We are committed to developing a procedure which acts as both a useful tool for frontline staff across all organisations and for social work practitioners who are central to the investigation process. We would welcome your comments on this document. Contact details can be found at the end of the document. Samih Kalakeche Director of Adult Services and Health Liverpool City Council 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
