New Board Set Up to Protect Vulnerable Adults in East Riding
11:31am 19th April 2013
Information about how to protect vulnerable adults can now be found on the East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board website.
The site, which can be found at www.ersab.org.uk, is aimed at both professionals and members of the public.
There is a whole host of information, including explanations on the seven forms of abuse and how members of the public who may have concerns can contact East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s safeguarding adults team.
Professionals can also access the training calendar as well as keeping up-to-date with the latest policies and procedures.
They are also able to make referrals via an electronic alerter form, although paper referrals are still available.
Mike Briggs, independent chair of East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board, said: “I am delighted to welcome and recommend this new website.
“It is easy to use and aimed at both professionals and members of the public.
“Safeguarding adults at risk is everyone’s business and I am sure, that in opening up another channel of communication that it will help to keep vulnerable people in the East Riding safe from harm.”
