This consultation ran from 01/03/2017 to 01/05/2017.
Thank you for taking the time to complete the Newcastle Safeguarding Adults Board online consultation on the Lets Talk Newcastle website. This is the first year we have hosted a public consultation and we are really pleased that so many people took the time to complete the survey.
On analysing the responses to the consultation, one of the main themes which emerged was that people would like to see more work done to raise awareness around the core messages of safeguarding adults. In particular, people felt that more should be done to inform members of the public about the different forms of abuse, and what people can do if they are concerned that either themselves, a family member, friend or neighbour has been the victim of, or is at risk of abuse.
In response to the findings from this years consultation, the board have developed a communication and awareness raising strategy. The strategy details numerous different steps that we will take to raise awareness of safeguarding procedures. Steps range from ensuring that promotional material such as leaflets and posters are available in key locations across the city including GP practices and libraries, to promoting key messages through social media. We will continue to work on the plan and will provide more feedback on our progress in next year's annual report.
Thanks you once again for taking the time to engage with our consultation, in the coming months we will be publishing details of how you can become involved in shaping our priorities for 2018-2019 and we hope to hear from you again then.
