In this webinar, we hear about Safeguarding Adult Reviews of people who were experiencing homelessness and get practical recommendations on what can be done to reduce harm and death.

Safeguarding is a statutory process which protects an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. There have been 48 Safeguarding Adult Reviews into the deaths of people who have died whilst sleeping rough and there is much learning about what steps can be taken to prevent similar deaths from occurring elsewhere.
