LSAB Adult Safeguarding Conference - Anticipation and Prevention
This year, our second adult safeguarding conference was held at Goldsmiths University and the theme for the conference was Anticipation and Prevention. Delegates from a wide variety of organisations, who contribute to safeguarding adults/children in Lewisham, attended this daylong event.
Speakers and Workshop facilitators
The speakers and workshop facilitators, who are leaders in their fields of expertise, were specifically selected to cover current issues that relate to all Lewisham Safeguarding Adults Board partners. Some of the speaker presentations were filmed, and are now available to view on the LSAB YouTube page.
Katie Scott (Barrister, 39 Essex Chambers) - Fluctuating Capacity
Lynne Phair (Lynne Phair Consultants) – Rights Based Risk Assessment

Louisa Snow (999 Club) – Safeguarding Homeless People
Katie London (Refuge Lewisham) – Domestic Abuse and Safeguarding

The Conference was an invaluable opportunity to continue our journey, cementing our partnership networks and developing our understanding of how to prevent and respond to abuse.
LSAB would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the conference. We hope to see again next year!
