National Safeguarding Adults Week
Mon, 18 Nov 2019

Safeguarding is everyone’s business and to help work better together staff are being encouraged to know the different types of abuse as part of National Safeguarding Adults Week from 18-24 November.

The week aims to raise awareness of the different forms of abuse and the part that everyone can play in helping to spot abuse.

Often those suffering abuse or neglect do not realise or want to admit that they are a victim and so it is crucial that the awareness of these issues is raised so that people can be safeguarded appropriately.

The following events have been organised to help raise awareness of abuse in adults:

Monday, 18 November            East Riding Leisure Goole

Tuesday, 19 November           East Riding Leisure Beverley and Pocklington Market Place (Healthwatch)

Wednesday, 20 November      The Point (County Hall, Beverley)

Thursday, 21 November          East Riding Leisure Withernsea

Friday, 22 November                East Riding Leisure Haltemprice

Staff are invited to visit a session to find out more about the work of the East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board, pick up a leaflet or discuss different types of abuse issues.

Members of staff can use the national week to identify key safeguarding issues and share these with colleagues and people they support, run an event or training session to get up to date on the latest safeguarding news and updates, understand their responsibilities in safeguarding adults at risk and take time out to assess their policies and practices.
