  • Learning about the key issues from our resources and information
  • Share the resources within your organisation and to the people you support
  • Use the #SafeguardingAdultsWeek hashtag on social media to share our resources and let us know what you’re doing across Trafford

Run safeguarding events and training

We want to give you the opportunity to focus on safeguarding adults at risk. You can use the National Safeguarding Adults Week to:

  • Identify key safeguarding issues and share these with your staff and people you support
  • Run an event or training session in your organisation to get you all up to date on the latest safeguarding news and updates
  • Understand your responsibilities in safeguarding adults at risk
  • Take time out to assess your policies and practices 

Encourage an open discussion

Safeguarding adults is the responsibility of all organisations and true open discussion is needed to get it right. We want to encourage participation from all organisations from sports to health care providers and to encourage discussion about these issues with everyone they support.

We know that organisations around the UK have been creating their own safeguarding weeks – so we want to bring everyone together.  So we can be better, together.
