Role of the advocate in safeguarding

Connected Voice Connected Voice
This session will help you understand the role of the advocate in safeguarding and how advocates work in the community

About this event

Connected Voice Advocacy works across the North East of England to support people to be heard and fight for their rights.

This session will give you an understanding of the role of the advocate in safeguarding, explaining how advocates work in the community and under the Care Act to ensure people are central to any safeguarding measures taken on their behalf by the relevant Local Authority. It will cover:

  • the basics of safeguarding – who it applies to and when it applies
  • the role of an advocate in keeping people safe in the community
  • the legal duty to have an Independent Advocate in safeguarding enquiries
  • how you can keep the people you work with safe and empowered
  • how to refer for an advocate

Email for information.

Delivery method

This online session will be delivered remotely using Zoom. We have taken every step to make this as simple, accessible and secure as possible. We will be able to advise on how to access the session easily and without having to download software. Zoom can be accessed by a smartphone, or any device with a camera and microphone such as a laptop, tablet or desktop computer.


All our Zoom training and events will have closed captions (automatic subtitles) enabled. We can also provide a BSL interpreter for training and events on request, but ask you to give us enough advance notice to enable this to be organised. To maximise resources, we are unable to provide BSL interpreters for all sessions unless we know this is essential.

For security and practical reasons:

You can only book one place for yourself, using the email address you use on the device you’ll be using to participate in the online session. If a colleague wants to attend, they will need to book separately themselves.

You must give us all the essential information requested so that we know your registration is genuine. We may check with you, especially if you aren’t from an organisation known to us

Joining instructions including the secure password, together with any handouts or worksheets, will be emailed to you 24 hours ahead of the session start time by the named person hosting the session. It is essential you do not share this with anyone not registered to attend. Anyone not on the registration list will not be allowed into the session.
