Social Work and Social Care seminar: New Arenas for Adult Safeguarding

In this presentation Professor Jill Manthorpe will outline some of the new subjects that are being taken up as safeguarding work and some of the longstanding subjects that are encountered in practice.

She will explore the changes that took place under the Care Act and whether these appear to have been minor or major. Jill will draw on the Social Care Workforce Research Unit's studies of adult safeguarding over the past 15 years to think about links between policy, practice and research.

More about the speaker:

Jill is Professor of Social Work at King's College London, Director of the Social Care Workforce Research Unit and NIHR Senior Investigator Emeritus. Currently she is involved in advisory work for the Department of Health on several subjects and works closely with several social care and health sector employers to link research, policy and practice. In the past year she has presented research findings to international conferences in Australia, Singapore, Norway and Northern Ireland; she also travels widely in the UK to speak with local and regional networks, mainly through Making Research Count.

She works on a number of Unit studies that are funded by the Department of Health and also on other studies funded by the NIHR, the ESRC, and research charities with Unit colleagues and other research teams.

Jill also provides assistance on workforce matters to local councils, NHS bodies, and employers on a pro bono basis and to user, carer and patient groups about evidence and communications. She provides expert advice to NICE and to other NHS Arm's Length Bodies about care services and workforce initiatives.
