National Safeguarding Adults Week 2020 will take place from 16 to 22 November. The annual awareness event, led by the Ann Craft Trust, aims to create a time where we can all focus on safeguarding adults.
Everyone, from all walks of life, should be aware of the role they can play in helping to prevent abuse. We should all know how to spot the signs of abuse, and the actions we should take if we spot any signs.
This year Safeguarding Adults Week aims to draw attention to certain key safeguarding themes:
- Monday – Safeguarding and Wellbeing
- Tuesday –Adult Grooming
- Wednesday – Understanding Legislation
- Thursday – Creating Safer Places
- Friday – Organisational Abuse
- Saturday – Sport and Activity
- Sunday – Safeguarding in Your Community
Sport and physical activity
Safeguarding adults in sport and physical activity remains one of the three main areas of focus for the Ann Craft Trust. Saturday 21 November will be devoted to this theme and we’d like to encourage sport and physical activity organisations across Kent to get involved. Together, we can make sport and activity safer and more accessible for everyone.
