Slough Safeguarding Adults

Multi-Agency Risk Tool For Adults

Recent SAR’s have highlighted the need to address concerns for adults (including 18 - 25 year olds transitioning from support from SCST) who do not access services for a number of reasons, including lack of perceived appropriate services, personal choice, lack of awareness.

A Multi agency risk tool (MART) has been developed to assist in support for these individuals and is available to download Here.

COVID-19 update on training for the MART

All face to face training is currently cancelled.  However a brief training video is available to view in the interim.  The video is for all staff across all agencies who work with people who refuse/do not access support, even when offered.

This video has been produced as a replacement  for the training sessions that have been cancelled due to COVID-19.  It is less than  15 minutes and is intended as an introduction to the tool and framework.  The framework and tool can be accessed HERE.

 

I would recommend that people download the document before they view the video.

 

I would recommend that this is viewed and then discussed in a team meeting or at least with a line manager to embed the learning and to discuss the best use of the tool for your clients/patients. You will also find Case studies below to help with the learning as mentioned in the video.
