National Safeguarding Adults Week 16 – 22 Nov 2020

National Safeguarding Week is an annual event held in November with the aim of the week to raise awareness about safeguarding. If you are looking for Safeguarding Training, the Carers Federation can help you with our on-line Safeguarding training courses:-

Safeguarding Competency training courses – This course is designed for front line Information, Advice and Support staff and Volunteers who work with vulnerable adults and is based on The National Competence Framework.

Adult Safeguarding in Residential Homes – We offer this course as a context-specific version of our Adult Safeguarding course. The content is aimed at front line staff and volunteers working in residential establishments, such as care and nursing homes with adults at risk, who do not have managerial or team leader responsibilities. It also follows the National Competence Framework for Safeguarding Adults.

Action for Young Carers Team deliver meals to Young Carer Families

With lockdown restrictions ongoing, many in our communities are struggling to get basic supplies. That’s why our Action for Young Carers team spent a busy afternoon yesterday delivering 45 hot, freshly prepared meals to some of the Young Carers and Nottingham Works Families we are supporting.

But we couldn’t have done it without our excellent community partners. Big shout out to Sewa Day (twitter: @sewaday) for providing the ingredients and thanks to Larwood and Voce (twitter: @LarwoodVocePK) for cooking it all up for us. We would also like to thank Hetvi (twitter: @hetvi_sw) for coordinating our efforts.

Social distancing measures were strictly adhered to and we think they all look rather fetching in their masks, don’t you?
