Learning and Improvement
Analysis, Learning and Improvement asks organisations to use the information that they gather through complaints, incident reporting and investigations to inform improvements to safeguarding practices. It also recognises the collaboration and cross-sector approaches to prevention and response to abuse, neglect and violence toward people with disability.
‘Safeguarding for Boards’ (with accessible version): This guide has been developed for members of Boards of Management (boards) of disability service providers. It provides information for boards to have a better understanding of abuse, neglect and violence experienced by people with disability. It outlines human rights-based organisational approaches to minimise risk of abuse, and best-practice and responsibilities for organisations in responding to abuse.
