National Safeguarding Adults Week

National Safeguarding Adults Week (NSAW)

NSAW is a time when organisations come together to raise awareness of important safeguarding issues. The campaign is led by Ann Craft Trust and the overarching theme for 2022 is ‘Responding to Contemporary Safeguarding Challenges’.

When is it?

Monday 21 November – Sunday 27 November 2022

What will it include?

Themes for the week:

  • Monday – Exploitation (including Modern Slavery, Sexual Exploitation and County Lines)
  • Tuesday – Self-Neglect
  • Wednesday – Creating Safer Organisational Cultures
  • Thursday – Elder Abuse
  • Friday – Domestic Abuse in Tech-Society
  • Saturday and Sunday – Safeguarding in Every Day Life

Learn more about the themes here:

For some organisations, some themes may be more applicable than others, but underpinning the whole campaign will be raising general awareness of adult safeguarding. The Board would like to raise general public awareness, but to also engage with service users, carers, harder to reach, marginalised and digitally excluded or isolated groups.

Would you like to take part?

You can easily get involved by printing, displaying and sharing our leaflets and posters and by sharing our social media posts @TeeswideSAB.

Keep an eye on this webpage for more updates and resources, which will be shared in the coming months.

If you work in the Tees area and have contact with adults who have care and support needs, you might also be interested in signing up to be a Safeguarding Champion.

If you have your own plans for the week, please get in touch, we would love to hear about the good work you are doing: [email protected]
