Safeguarding Adults Week 2023 – Links, Resources, and More

Safeguarding Adults Week 2023 takes place from Monday 20 – Friday 24 November 2023. 

During Safeguarding Adults Week 2023, we are focusing on how you can prioritise the welfare and wellbeing of yourself and others. Learn more about this year’s key themes.

It’s an opportunity for organisations to come together to raise awareness of important safeguarding issues. The aim is to highlight key safeguarding issues, start conversations and raise awareness of safeguarding best practice. Each day, we’ll be focusing on a different safeguarding theme which relates to how individuals and organisations can safeguard themselves and others.

Below, find some free resources to help you start some vital conversations online. We’ll update this page in the months leading up to the week. So bookmark this page to stay informed! You can also sign up to receive email updates here.
