Safeguarding Week took place on 20 - 24 June 2022. Partners from Safeguarding Adults Boards, Children’s Safeguarding Partnerships, Community Safety Partnerships across North Yorkshire, the City of York and East Riding came together to developed an extensive programme of learning events, seminars and interactive sessions which all underpin this year’s theme - ‘Safeguarding is everybody’s business’.

Spurred on by the success of Safeguarding Week 2021 the safeguarding partners worked to extend the range of topics being covered this year. The week-long programme of over 55 sessions catered for professionals and members of the public who wanted to learn more about safeguarding.

Covering topics such as support for children and young people impacted by Domestic Abuse, signs of radicalisation, keeping children safe on-line, fraud awareness and protection, the power of the bystander amongst many other safeguarding areas. The sessions were designed to stimulate discussion, spark innovation and share best practice. Each session was delivered by inspirational and motivational speakers, all of whom are experts in their field.
Look out for the next years safeguarding week and the next National Adult Safeguarding Week which will be held on November 16 - 22 2022.
