If you are concerned and would like to make a Prevent referral, please use our referral form.
All information you provide is valuable and will be assessed. If there is no Prevent concern, but other safeguarding issues are present, we will pass this referral on to the relevant team/agency in order to provide the correct support for the individual.
The Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and the Prevent Duty Guidance place an expectation on Cheshire West and Chester Council to ensure that all publicly owned venues and resources do not provide a platform for extremists and are not used to disseminate extremist views or ideologies. The guidance below has been developed to assist Council staff and relevant partners to meet these obligations. In general, bookings must not incite hatred, intolerance, law breaking or violence, nor must they pose a reputational risk to the Council.
Basic Awareness in Adult Safeguarding
This free e-learning module is available to all staff who are employed or volunteer in organisations that work with people at risk in Cheshire West and Chester. This includes all Health and Social Care staff, non-care staff, drivers, housekeepers and kitchen staff.
Although this module is ‘Basic Awareness’ it is useful for supervisory staff/managers who need to refresh/update their training in this area.
You will require an access code to open this training module, please speak to your manager who will be able to provide this.
Here are your instructions to access this module:
- Visit the iLearn website
- Guest access password is then entered which will be supplied by your manager.
- Then complete the course and complete the smart survey at the end, so your completion can be tracked.
- You will need to complete the whole module in one sitting as the Guest access does not bookmark your progress
A key duty is for Boards to commission Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs), when:
- an adult in its area dies as a result of abuse or neglect, whether known or suspected, and there is a concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult; or
- an adult in its area has not died, but the Board knows or suspects that the adult has experienced significant abuse or neglect.
Reviews should determine what the relevant agencies and individuals involved in the case might have done differently that could have prevented harm or death and address, where appropriate, questions family or friends of the adult may have. This is so that lessons can be learned from the case, and those lessons applied to practice preventing similar harm occurring again.
Cases can be referred to LSAB for consideration by completing the SAR referral form. Anyone can refer a case for consideration.
