How Do We Support People who Self-Neglect? 
6 December 1 -4.30pm – book here
This session will explore what self-neglect is and the importance of assessment of mental capacity in this area. It will consider strategies for enabling partnership working and for sound risk management, and will look at recent research and use case studies and discussion to explore the themes raised by this topic.


This session is presented as part of the Learning Together to Safeguard the City Week where Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) and the Safe in The City Partnership Board come together to raise awareness of safeguarding issues and promote how we can best work together to protect, and improve outcomes for, the most vulnerable in our society.

The aim of this week is to reveal and debate some of the most important issues in our city which affect individuals, their families and the wider community, as well as exploring the responsibilities of professionals in their everyday work and their contribution in keeping people safe and well.

All sessions can be booked through the Brighton & Hove Learning Gateway:
