Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board invites you to the Town Hall for a public event to help people recognise signs of domestic abuse and guide them through the support that’s available. The event will also introduce people to the role of Lambeth’s Adult Social Care service in protecting the most vulnerable people in our communities. This event is developed by the Community Reference Group, Lambeth’s Violence against Women and Girls Team in partnership with Lambeth Adult Social Care.

Signs of danger

The Safeguarding Adults Board supports Safer Lambeth Partnership’s vision of Lambeth as a borough where residents don’t have to experience, or fear, gender-based violence. We want to make sure that we’re doing all we can to stop abuse and neglect happening. A key element is ensuring that everyone living and working in Lambeth can recognise the signs that someone is at risk of abuse and neglect – and know how to respond.

How to book your place at the event

Sign up for free tickets via eventbrite  or email and come to Lambeth Town Hall (Room B-06) on 16 July, 1pm to 3.30pm.
