Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board Strategic Plan 2016/21 – Now Published

Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board Strategic Plan 2016/21

This Strategic Plan highlights the HSAB’s strategic priorities and objectives over the next five years. A number of factors have helped to shape and influence these priorities including a review of the Board carried out earlier in the year, response to national developments, the findings of a major stakeholder survey undertaken in January 2016 and feedback gained from a series of engagement events held in May 2016. For more detailed information on this plan and others, please visit our Strategies & Plans page.

HSCB FGM Strategy

Hampshire’s Safeguarding Boards have collaborated to  develop a new multi-agency policy and practice guidance on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). This covers mandatory reporting duties relating to girls under 18 year old and also our wider responsibilities to women over 18 years who may have been subject to FGM. Copies of these documents can be found in the Professionals area of the website.

Launch of the Wellbeing Trigger Tool

Hampshire County Council’s Supportive Communities Team have developed a new Wellbeing Trigger Tool e-learning package. This is a free 45 minute interactive training tool to help volunteers, neighbours and the general public and professionals  to help people to stay well, independent and safe in their own homes for as long as possible.  With a focus on helping people to help themselves, thinking about quality of life and remembering to ‘Think Carers!’, this light touch training tool will help anyone to support someone in their local community. The training also introduces the new ‘Connect to Support’ website which offers information and a directory of services for Hampshire residents.  Please use the following link to access the training or alternatively, you can access this through the ‘Community and Your Area’ section from the Hantsweb host page:

Please share this training as far and wide as you can as it is helpful to all. You are welcome to put a link to the training on your own websites. Your local Voluntary Service will also be offering a free community based version of this training from October 2016.
