Safeguarding Adults Week 2022
Safeguarding Adults Week 2022 will focus on the theme ‘Responding to Contemporary Safeguarding Challenges’.
Safeguarding Adults Week, run by the Ann Craft Trust, is a time for organisations to come together to raise awareness of important safeguarding issues. The week aims to enable more organisations and individuals to feel confident in recognising signs of abuse and neglect and recording and reporting safeguarding concerns.
Each day of the week will have a different theme:
- Monday – Exploitation and County Lines
- Tuesday – Self-neglect
- Wednesday – Creating Safer Organisational Cultures
- Thursday – Elder Abuse
- Friday – Domestic Abuse in Tech-Society
- Saturday & Sunday – Safeguarding in Everyday Life
Safeguarding can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially for new organisations, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve gathered together some useful resources to support colleagues in the sector working with children and adults to ensure service users, volunteers and paid staff are safe from harm.
VCSE safeguarding assessment checklist
This checklist and resources guide has been produced to support colleagues in the sector working with children and adults to ensure service users, volunteers and paid staff are safe from harm.
This guidance will help an organisation create a policy and procedure that reflects the needs of their organisation and their service users.
Keeping Safe Resources
The North Yorkshire Safeguarding Adults Board (NYSAB) has put together a list of keeping safe resources available on the NYSAB website.

We run regular safeguarding training for trustees and have information about online training that will help you understand what safeguarding is, the responsibilities of safeguarding for trustees and others in your organisation, and how to keep vulnerable people safe. Find out more here.
