Safeguarding Adults Week 2020 – Links and Resources

Safeguarding Adults Week 2020

Safeguarding Adults Week 2020 will take place 16 – 22 November.

Each day of the week we’ll focus on a different safeguarding theme. These themes are broad, and each one covers many different areas of focus.

To help you prepare for the event, we’ve gathered a number of resources for each theme.

We designed these resources to spark conversations, and to help spread our message on social media.

We’ll be adding more resources as we get closer to the week itself. So watch this space for updates!

Plus, these themes are not exhaustive. Our aim is to highlight certain causes, and to start some vital conversations. But if you want to use Safeguarding Adults Week to talk about a different aspect of safeguarding, please do so!

We’d love to hear about your plans for this year’s Safeguarding Adults Week. And don’t forget to use our #SafeguardingAdultsWeek hashtag when posting to social media!
