FSDG Learning Briefing 2023
National Safeguarding Week gives us the opportunity to shine a spotlight on different aspects of abuse and themes relating to adults at risk. The Ann Craft Trust have historically coordinated the themes for Safeguarding Week and, having reviewed the topics for 2023 with the other LSABs within our area (IOW, Portsmouth and Southampton), we have decided that these are well-matched with our local issues and priorities:
Safeguarding Adults Week 2023 – Links, Resources, and More – Ann Craft Trust
In coordinating this week, we will be sharing national and local material and resources relating to each specific theme which you’ll be able to cascade within your organisation and networks and social media channels. To help with this, we have populated a webpage for each day of the week with information that can be accessed ahead of Safeguarding Week to help with social media planning etc. You will be invaluable in helping us to promote the core messages relating to our core safeguarding across the themes identified.
The landing page link to the HSAB website for this year’s National Safeguarding Week is:
National Safeguarding Adults Week 20th to 24th November 2023
The themes that will be highlighted each day are as follows:

The Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board (HSAB) has today published an independent self-neglect gap analysis Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) into the circumstances surrounding three individual cases of self-neglect which resulted in the deaths of those involved.
Firstly, the HSAB would like to express its sincere condolences to each of the individual’s families. The HSAB would also like to acknowledge the input from partner agencies and practitioners who have, where possible, shared the views of the individuals.
The purpose of this gap analysis SAR was to gain any new learning and identify how agencies are working together and with individuals now in relation to the themes found in the self-neglect thematic review published in March 2022. A number of learning points have been identified, along with acknowledgement of progress in some areas of practice.
Relevant agencies will now develop actions to address the learning and continue to strive for positive change for the adults we support. Progress will be reviewed and monitored by the Board.
