Safeguarding Adults Awareness Week

11-15 September 2017

What you can do … Take the Challenge

Click here to take four positive actions you can take to support the safeguarding adults awareness week and campaign against financial abuse and scams in your community.

The themes of neglect and financial abuse are the focus of this year's safeguarding adults' awareness week and these are some of the events which are planned for the week in the localities:

West:   there will be a manned stand in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn, where safeguarding representatives will be meeting and engaging with staff, patients and visitors, handing out information and some of our fabulous new NSAB pens and shopper bags!  There will be general awareness raising at the Borough Council of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk and a half day hoarding workshop will be taking place at St Michael's Centre in South Lynn on 12 September.

East:   public surveys will take place at Gorleston library and Great Yarmouth market place.

Central:   pens, bags and a survey will be shared with members of the public at Morrisons in Albion Way, Norwich and St Stephen's Church near to Chapelfield shopping mall in Norwich city centre.

North:   resources will be distributed through Age UK, Centra, Alzheimers UK and prisons, to name but a few.  Jo Cook will be discussing self-neglect and hoarding at Broadland District Council early help hub.  Posters and leaflets will be available at North Walsham community hospital and distributed to other community hospitals in the area.   

We will give you an update of how the events went following safeguarding awareness week. 

And, of course, NSAB are holding a financial abuse and scams conference on Thursday 14 September in partnership with Trading Standards and Norfolk Fire & Rescue.  Full details here.
