ADULT SAFEGUARDING INFORMATION

In the event of any possible Adult Safeguarding concern, there are several steps that all our volunteers need to be aware of.

What you should do:

Call emergency services if there is immediate danger
Keep the person safe
Report at once to Association of Carers Staff. Use the on-call phone if it is out of office hours (07821 659402)
Preserve evidence
Support and reassure the adult throughout
Observe confidentiality as much as possible. Remember confidentiality is between them and The Association of Carers. Not you as the individual.
Make a written account immediately after you have left the situation, so you do not forget what has been said. Remember to keep things factual.

As volunteers for The Association of Carers the main thing you need to remember is just to call in if you are worried for any reason.

Any alerts to Adult Social Care will always be passed through by a staff member, this is not an expectation of volunteers.

Being vigilant when undertaking your role(s) so you can inform us of any issues is your main responsibility.
