Public social care and health organisations across North Wales will be doing their bit to promote this year’s National Safeguarding Week (November 12-16), with a mixture of training and information events.
Events being held across North Wales during the week include sessions on self-harm awareness, safeguarding children, modern day slavery and adults at risk.
One of the highlights of the week is a day – long conference where staff working for the various agencies get together to learn about good practice in safeguarding, sharing case studies and learning from each other.
Jenny Williams, Director of Social Services at Conwy Council, who also chairs the North Wales Safeguarding Board, said: “National Safeguarding Week has long established itself as a great opportunity to highlight the good work going on nationally to improve people’s well-being, but to also inform the public on what they should do if they have any concerns.
“Children and adults at risk regularly access a range of our services and safeguarding is a responsibility for us all. If people have the slightest concern about a child or adult at risk, then in must be reported. It’s very much a case of better being safe than sorry.
“All partner agencies have a clear role to play in ensuring that all staff are fully aware of their safeguarding responsibilities and where / how they should report their concerns. The North Wales region is pleased to be supporting this year’s national campaign.
