National Adult Safeguarding Week: 18 – 24 November 2019

National Adult Safeguarding Week is an annual awareness-raising campaign to highlight safeguarding issues.

Each day of National Safeguarding Week will focus on a different theme.  The themes include Modern Slavery, Self Neglect, Domestic Abuse, Transforming Care and Safeguarding Adults in Sport and Activity.

As well as highlighting issues, the week aims to improve the awareness of responsibilities, which should always be clearly reflected in any organisation’s policies and procedures.

The Richmond and Wandsworth Safeguarding Adults Board is running a week of local bite-size training sessions each day of the week, as follows:

The sessions are 90 minutes long and are held at either Twickenham Training Centre (Grimwood Road) or Wandsworth Town Hall – please check individual listings.   Places are limited and early booking is recommended.
