National Safeguarding Week 2017 LogoSafeguarding Week is a dedicated week that aims to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding with members of the public and within our own organisations. 

This year, National Safeguarding Week will be held 11th-15th November. Safeguarding is everybody’s business and enables people to live their lives free from harm, abuse and neglect.

Each year our local Safeguarding Boards for children and adults now known as West Glamorgan Safeguarding Boards puts a calendar of events together for the week made up of events happening across the West Glamorgan region that people can attend or it may be an event just for their organisation.

Do you have an event planned to raise the profile of safeguarding within this week or could you organise something for your staff, trustees or volunteers? Some examples of events may include: supervision sessions, safeguarding training or an event for volunteers with a guest speaker on a safeguarding topic.  

Please let us know if you are organising anything so we can add it to the regional calendar of events mentioned above. If it’s an event that is ongoing or held just before or just after safeguarding week these can also be added.

The information we need about your event is:

  • Date/day
  • Time
  • Event
  • Venue
  • Aim
  • Contact details
  • Open/closed event please give details. E.g. is it for your volunteers/members only or open to other organisations or the public

Please return it to [email protected] by Monday 7th October.
