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 sessions for anyone wanting to learn more about safeguarding or 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

Speaking about the forthcoming conference, Richard Webb, Corporate Director, Health and Adult Services North Yorkshire County Council said:
“The week gives us the opportunity to demystify ‘Safeguarding’, explain what it is and how everyone, both professionals and members of the public, can get involved. Everybody has a part to play in keeping themselves, friends and family, employees and our wider community safe. Over the past 16 months of the pandemic, we have seen an outpouring of kindness, consideration and thought for one another, especially for those within our communities who are more vulnerable. Safeguarding Week gives everyone a chance to learn more about the agencies and organisations who can support all that goodwill and kindness, ensuring it is sustainable for the long term, resulting in stronger and more resilient communities.”
