Service user forum
There is a very active service user safeguarding forum in Hampshire which meets twice a year. It tells people what safeguarding is, lets them know what they should do if they are being hurt or if they know someone who is being hurt and also allows them to share ideas with other service users. There are visiting speakers who give information to help people keep themselves safe.
