OSAB are proud to 'open' the Safeguarding Library to raise awareness of Safeguarding Adults and to celebrate National Safeguarding Adults Week 2021 (from 15-21 November 2021).
The Safeguarding Library is Oldham Safeguarding Adults Board's take on the Human Library movement. All our human books are people with personal experience and insight of adult safeguarding.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to do some of the safeguarding roles in Oldham? What some people’s experiences are and the skills they need to do what they do? The Safeguarding Library is your chance to find out and ask some questions of our human books.
We have collected a series of video interviews with people who have volunteered to be an ‘open book’. We have chosen to interview people with personal experience and insight of adult safeguarding and the aim is to understand why they do their job, how they do it and what advice they have for others who may be interested in working in safeguarding. Apart from a few general questions, all the questions asked of our human books have been submitted by safeguarding staff from different services in Oldham: from social workers and nurses, to police officers and support workers, as well as members of the public in Oldham.
When new additions to the Safeguarding Library are planned, OSAB will invite all Oldham staff and members of the public to submit their questions.
