Capita’s National Conference Safeguarding At-Risk Adults in Wales Monday 10th December 2012 – Cardiff


Published by Anonymous for Capita Conferences in Health

Chair: Professor John Williams, Department of Law and Criminology, Aberystwyth University


Capita’s National Safeguarding At-Risk Adults in Wales Conference will be an excellent opportunity for you to hear from policy leaders and expert practitioners as they examine the impact of the legislative changes, as outlined in the forthcoming Social Services Bill, on existing adult protection arrangements in Wales.


Proposals within the Bill will aim to drive up standards, deliver consistency, and ensure action to strengthen adult protection arrangements. Embedded within this is an emphasis on the importance of a multi-agency approach. This timely event brings together leading stakeholders from across health, social services, housing and the police to share learning and best practice on improving outcomes for at-risk adults.


Attend this event to benchmark your own adult protection services against best practice from across the country and ensure positive outcomes for adults who are at risk of abuse in your area.
