In order for safeguarding to work effectively we need people to understand what it is, why it’s relevant to them and what they should if they suspect abuse is occurring.
The following videos are produced by our Safeguarding Ambassador’s (who are both residents and service users from the communities of the Bi-borough) and play a key role in raising awareness about what safeguarding is, how to recognise abuse and neglect and what action to take to report concerns.

Adult Safeguarding (BSL)
Adult safeguarding is the process of protecting adults with care and support needs from abuse or neglect. It is an important part of what many public services do, but the key responsibility is with local authorities.
(Social Care and Health have produced a video on Safeguarding Adults in British Sign Language.)
Don’t Ignore It. Report It!
If you suspect a neighbour, friend or family member is being neglected or abused, or you need help yourself:
