I then worked as a Safeguarding Adult Board Manager for 8 years forming the National Safeguarding Board Managers Network. This allowed the sharing of good practice across the country. I was a trustee of Action on Elder Abuse for 3 years. My company, Simply Safeguarding is in its 9th year and has an excellent reputation across the country. I have recently concluded 12 Dental Conference speaker sessions on safeguarding. I deliver training on Safeguarding Adults, Children, Modern Slavery and the Mental Capacity Act.
