National Safeguarding Adults Week 2019

National Safeguarding Adults Week, organised by The Ann Craft Trust, in association with the University of Nottingham and The Safeguarding Adult Board (SAB) Manager Network, will take place from 18th to 22nd November 2019.

Each day of the campaign will be focusing on a different issue affecting safeguarding adults at risk. The themes are, Modern Slavery, Self-Neglect, Domestic Abuse, Transforming Care, My role in Safeguarding and Safeguarding adults in sport and activity.

This year, Wigan Safeguarding Partnership will be helping to spread the message that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility in a number of ways including, raising awareness out and about with residents across the borough, via their social media channels, during safeguarding training sessions and through their own safeguarding campaign #Together Against Abuse. The Awareness Week will also be promoted internally to all Wigan Council Staff.

Wigan Safeguarding Partnership Independent Chair, Dr. Paul Kingston said “National Safeguarding Adults Week provides the perfect opportunity for everyone to update themselves on key safeguarding topics and to understand their responsibilities to safeguard adults at risk in the Wigan borough and nationally.
