Safeguarding - keeping you safe
Your health, wellbeing and safety is very important to us. If someone contacts us because they think you might be at risk of harm, we will either telephone you or arrange for someone to visit you to make sure you are okay and see if there is anything we can do to make things better for you. This is known as safeguarding.
You can read about the types of concerns people might have that would trigger a response from us in Everybody's Business and Everybody's Business - easy-read version.

Making safeguarding personal
In Herefordshire, we want to make sure that everything we do to help you is based on your hopes and aspirations rather than us simply telling you what you need to do. We want you to be in control as much as you can be and want to be. This is our new approach and is part of a nationwide change to make safeguarding personal.
If someone rings us because they are concerned for your safety, we will work with you or an advocate (friend, carer or representative) to find out what you need to happen to make you feel safe again.
Herefordshire Safeguarding Adults Board (HSAB) brings together all individuals and representatives from various agencies to work in partnership and develop best practice to safeguard adults.
