Safeguarding Week 2017

Safeguarding Week Success!

West Sussex Safeguarding Adults Board teamed up together with the Children Safeguarding Board together which ran from 27th November until 1st December 2017.  It was a very successful event with many of our partners taking part.  There were some innovative and exciting ways that groups and organisations shared information with adults who are at risk of safeguarding concerns but also with staff, family carers, carers and friends and family.  If you wish to see a full list of partners who took part in Safeguarding Week click here

Safeguarding Week Programme of Events

Hearts and Tarts

As a part of Safeguarding Week, the West Sussex County Council – Care and Business Support Team have created a  pledge template to demonstrate a commitment to support people to feel safe.  This pledge is a great idea to help support services to raise awareness internally and get staff talking about safeguarding.  The initiative is called “Hearts and Tarts” which stems from the idea tarts and cakes could be given away in exchange for people making a commitment to make safeguarding personal.  This is a great way for your organisation to get involved in safeguarding.
