NATIONAL SAFEGUARDING WEEK – 16th – 22nd November 2020

Cheshire East’s Adult Safeguarding Board are committed to raising the profile of Adult Safeguarding.  National Safeguarding week is an excellent opportunity to promote safeguarding and the work that a number of organisations are doing to protect residents across Cheshire East.

We can use the National Safeguarding Adults Week to:

  • Raise awareness of key safeguarding issues and share these with staff, volunteers and people we support
  • Run an event or training session to enable organisations to get up to date on the latest safeguarding news and updates
  • Carry out some myth busting, so that residents and organisations are fully aware of what is safeguarding and how collectively we can work together to prevent abuse.

Each day of the week will focus on a different safeguarding theme:

  • Safeguarding and Wellbeing
  • Adult Grooming
  • Understanding Legislation
  • Creating Safer Places
  • Organisational Abuse
  • Sport & Activity
  • Safeguarding in Your Community
