Partners from Safeguarding Adults Boards, Children’s Safeguarding Partnerships, Community Safety Partnerships across North Yorkshire, the City of York and East Riding have come together and developed an extensive programme of learning events, seminars and interactive sessions which all underpin this year’s Safeguarding Week theme – ‘Safeguarding is everybody’s business’.
Spurred on by the success of last year’s event, the safeguarding partners have worked to extend the range of topics being covered this year. While a number of the sessions are open only to professionals working in the safeguarding sector, the majority of the sessions are also open to the public. The week-long programme of over 50 sessions caters for members of the public who want 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 have been designed to stimulate discussion, spark innovation and share best practice. Each session will be delivered by inspirational and motivational speakers, all of whom are experts in their field.
The full programme of events is open for viewing and booking, and early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
All the agencies involved will be sharing information across their social media channels and website in the run up to Safeguarding week and throughout the week. To follow along look for the hashtag #safeguardingweek2022
T/Assistant Chief Constable Lindsey Butterfield, Chair of the North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership, said:
“It is a real privilege to represent the work of the North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership as we stride towards Safeguarding Week running from 20 to 24 June.
“Our strength is in our values and objectives delivered collectively by our partnership, who have come together to deliver a real depth and spread of events that span Community Safety, Hate Crime, Prevent and Domestic Abuse.
“We have a number of sessions covering domestic abuse with our focus on the key themes to support professionals and public alike understand the journey the impact of domestic abuse on adult victims and survivors and their children and our approach to challenging and pursuing perpetrators of abuse.
“This is an incredible opportunity for all to gain knowledge, confidence and skills in managing this key area that affects so many within our community. I encourage everyone to have a look at the programme, there really is something there for everyone who has an interest in safeguarding their family, friends and community.”
