This seminar is organised by the IASW’s Adult Safeguarding and Protection (ASaP) Associate Group and is the second in a series of seminars titled Making the Invisible Visible.
Kate Spreadbury is an independent social worker specialising in adult safeguarding. Kate’s work around Safeguarding Adult Boards and Reviews has been important in evaluating and reviewing both the regulatory and day to day functioning of safeguarding in England and Wales.
The Adult Safeguarding Practice Handbook (Kate Spreadbury and Rachel Hubbard) has been extremely important in bringing the various practice issues and institutional barriers to the fore. Making safeguarding personal, an ADASS practice framework, will be a key theme for safeguarding adults' work in Ireland through law, policy, regulation and practice.
