Supporting Making Safeguarding Personal: Myth Busting
Esi Hardy and Michael Preston-Shoot have recorded a series of Podcasts which explore some of the myths around Making Safeguarding Personal. Together they combine lived experience with practitioner experience to begin to makes sense of what it means to make safeguarding personal for everyone.
Research in Practice for Adults is delighted to host the series which contains 11 episodes and is a useful resource for people to listen to on their own, or to use as a group discussion and learning opportunity.
