What are the multi-agency arrangements for safeguarding adults in North Yorkshire?
The North Yorkshire safeguarding adults board has been set up to protect adults who may be at risk from abuse by promoting co-operation and effective working practices between different agencies.
The board membership includes lead officers from social care services, police, health, housing, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Care Quality Commission and voluntary agencies.
The board meets quarterly to ensure that safeguarding policies are fit for purpose and of a high quality. They also consider new national and local developments in safeguarding and look at ways to improve practice. The board also consider lessons learnt and ensure that appropriate training is being delivered effectively to all groups.
You can find more information about the work the board does and safeguarding in general, in the documents below. The policies and procedures have been developed in consultation with all partner agencies on the safeguarding adults board.
Safeguarding training for people from the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors
Anyone who works with adults in the community, either as a paid worker or volunteer, has a role to play in safeguarding adults and promoting their health and wellbeing. They need to have the right skills and knowledge to work with people to help and protect them.
To help achieve this, a range of training courses have been developed to suit all levels of staff and volunteers from the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors.
See the safeguarding training course dates for partner organisations [917kb] [pdf] document for a list of the latest courses available and how to access them. All courses must be booked online via the Council's Learning Zone. Please see the NYCC learning zone - application for online booking [379kb] [word] document to apply for a course.
If you have secured a place on a particular course, but then are unable to attend, please inform workforce development immediately by telephoning 01609 536399 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
