Making Safeguarding Personal

The Newcastle Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) have published a guide to Making Safeguarding Personal which is often referred to as “MSP” for short. It reflects one of the key principles of safeguarding adults, empowerment:

” I am asked what I want as the outcomes from the safeguarding process and these directly inform what happens”

The guide is aimed at those who work or volunteer with adults at risk. It covers:

  • What MSP is.
  • Why MSP is important
  • Whose responsibility MSP is.
  • Practical steps that can be taken to make safeguarding personal.

MSP is an important part of safeguarding adults work and is a key consideration in all of the work that the NSAB does.
