Protecting adults at risk
Keeping Safe Easy Read Guides
It is important that everyone has the information they need to be safe and feel safe. It is also a legal requirement under the Accessible Information Standard that people with a disability have information they can understand.
That is why the Safeguarding Adults Board worked with the North Yorkshire Learning Disability Partnership Board and Inclusion North to write some easy read books about ‘Keeping Safe’.
Self-advocates with a learning disability helped us think about the important issues people need to know to stay safe. Working with Inclusion North and KeyRing, self-advocates decided on the best words and images to help people understand what to do.
Together we have made three Keeping Safe books:
- Book 1 – What is Abuse is about different types of abuse that can happen Click here to view Book 1
- Book 2 – Speaking up about Abuse is about telling someone about abuse that is happening Click here to view Book 2
- Book 3 – Reporting Abuse is about making a report to the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Adults Board Click here to view Book 3
The books are full of useful information for anyone interested in learning more about keeping safe and the work of the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Adults Board. All the books are available for free. Print out a copy for yourself or to read with someone you know.
