This week is Safeguarding Adults Week (15 to 21 November). It’s a time for organisations to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding adults and the best practice in safeguarding.
The awareness week aims to enable more organisations and individuals to feel confident in recognising signs of abuse and neglect and recording and reporting safeguarding concerns.
Watch the Ann Craft Trust video to find out more about safeguarding.
