The Knowsley Safeguarding Adults Board partnership (KSAB) has developed a Toolkit to support practitioners who are working with people with dementia who may be experiencing domestic abuse.  The Toolkit helps to recognise potential warning signs that indicate domestic abuse might be taking place and offers guidance on steps to take in responding appropriately.

It also provides contact details for local domestic abuse support in Knowsley, as well as wider support services available. The toolkit aims to support making a referral and for support on what to do when recording.

If you have any further questions, please contact KSAB@knowsley.gov.uk. Additionally, visit their website to access the toolkit and lots of other useful resources in relation to Safeguarding.

KSAB welcome any feedback in relation to the toolkit or other resources and would like to hear how you have shared within your teams or organisations.
