Safeguarding Week 2021

A virtual, online conference will take place between Monday 21 and Friday 25 June, to mark Safeguarding Week 2021.

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 theme – ‘Safeguarding is everybody’s business’.

The conference boasts a packed programme of free sessions, with the majority catering for both members of the public who want to learn more about safeguarding, and professionals wanting to develop their skills and knowledge.

Covering topics such as self-neglect, loneliness and isolation, babies in lockdown, modern slavery, domestic abuse and child exploitation, 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 via the North Yorkshire Police Eventbrite webpage www.nypolice.eventbrite.com.

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 #safeguardingiseverybodysbusiness
