Trilogy of Risk: Awareness Raising Resources

Alcohol/Drug Misuse
Domestic Abuse
Mental ill-health

The Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Children and Safeguarding Adults Boards have undertaken case reviews after the death or serious harm to a child or adult and the learning from these reviews has highlighted how we need to understand that risk is increased when these issues are found together and strengthen working practice to tackle this more effectively.

This is a complex area of work and we need to raise the awareness of all workers who may come across individuals who are struggling with one or more of these issues. We want to prompt thinking about the potential for increased risk – whether you work primarily with adults or children. So we have:

  • Produced a poster
  • Produced a leaflet
  • Put together a PowerPoint
  • Made an Introductory video.
