The Care Act (2014) sets out the following Six Principles of Adult Safeguarding that should underpin the safeguarding of adults.

Six Principles of Adult Safeguarding

Empowerment – People are supported and encouraged to make their own decisions and informed consent.  “I am asked what I want as the outcomes from the safeguarding process and this directly inform what happens.”

Prevention – It is better to take action before harm occurs.  “I receive clear and simple information about what abuse is. I know how to recognise the signs, and I know what I can do to seek help.”

Proportionality – The least intrusive response appropriate to the risk presented.  “I am sure that the professionals will work in my interest and they will only get involved as much as is necessary.”

Protection – Support and representation for those in greatest need.  “I get help and support to report abuse and neglect. I get help so that I am able to take part in the safeguarding process to the extent to which I want.”

Partnership – Services offer local solutions through working closely with their communities. Communities have a part to play in preventing, detecting and reporting neglect and abuse.  “I know that staff treat any personal and sensitive information in confidence, only sharing what is helpful and necessary. I am confident that professionals will work together and with me to get the best result for me.”

Accountability – Accountability and transparency in delivering safeguarding.  “I understand the role of everyone involved in my life and so do they.”

I have known Fee Lee for many years as we served together in the same police force. I have been her student and also worked along side her as a trainer. Fee’s knowledge in sexual offence investigations was outstanding and she went above and beyond her role to improve police response to victims.Fee excelled further in Child Protection and is an expert in Safeguarding.I have recently attended some of Fee’s training sessions - she remains extremely passionate about her work and this shines through in her training delivery. She is friendly and engaging and her training is current, practical and realistic. I have no hesitation in recommending Fee.

I enjoyed working with Fiona at Safe-guarding.co in delivering specialist Level 4 safeguarding training for GPs.  The high quality conferences that she delivered were met with very positive feedback from delegates. Fiona is well organised and helped with the logistics to run the training efficiently and sensitively.
