The Adult Safeguarding Champion role combines responsibility for strategy, operations and oversight for an organisation in relation to adults at risk of harm under “Adult Safeguarding: Prevention and Protection in Partnership” (2015) and the “Adult Safeguarding Operational Procedures” (2016).  Some organisations will also have Appointed Persons, with delegated responsibility for day to day adult safeguarding operations.

  • The role and responsibilities of the Adult Safeguarding Champion/Appointed Person
  • The safeguarding adults structure for Northern Ireland
  • Determining the correct course of action in relation to safeguarding concerns
  • Consent, capacity and coercion
  • Organisational and Trust responsibilities
  • Monitoring and reporting duties of the Adult Safeguarding Champion.
