Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board - Volunteer Scheme - Safeguarding Friends
Question: Do you believe that everyone has the right to live their life free from abuse and harm?
Question: Do you have a background in adult safeguarding?
Question: Are you a retired professional who can spare up to 1½ days per month to help protect people vulnerable to abuse and harm?
If you answered yes to the above questions, then Safeguarding Friends would like you to get in touch.
Safeguarding Friends (SGF) is a new scheme to provide ‘safeguarding conversations’ with people living in care settings. SGF is a group of volunteers who approach and visit residential care establishments to talk directly to residents, either with or without family members, about the 10 types of abuse.
As part of SGF, you will be enhancing the knowledge of residents, and others, to make informed decisions about their lives. You will also play a vital part in helping the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) to inform adults in receipt of care services and their families about safeguarding.
