TESTIMONIAL

It has been an absolute pleasure working in partnership with Tri-X to develop our Gateshead Safeguarding Adults Board Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures. Sally demonstrated a wealth of knowledge and experience in Adult Safeguarding, and was able to provide us with an impressive foundation which was statutorily compliant and highlighted national guidance and best practice. We were then able to shape our policy and procedures to ensure they truly represented our local values, structures and operational practice.
