Safeguarding Adults Week 2020

National Safeguarding Adults Week 2020 will take place from 16- 22 November.

In Safeguarding Adults Week we aim to create a time where we can all focus on safeguarding adults. Each day will be focused on a different safeguarding adults at risk issue.

We have created a host of free resources for you to use and share throughout the week. 

Everyone, from all walks of life, should be aware of the role they can play in helping to prevent abuse. We should all know how to spot the signs of abuse, and the actions we should take if we spot any signs.

That’s what Safeguarding Adults Week is all about. We want to start a nationwide conversation about safeguarding – so we can all be better, together.

Safeguarding Adults Week 2019 was a huge success. We reached nearly six million people on Twitter alone. This year, we want to reach even more.
