Safeguarding Week 2020

Due to restrictions around COVID-19, a scaled back Safeguarding Week 2020 will be undertaken as a virtual awareness raising campaign.  Over the week (22nd-26th June) we will use social media to promote awareness to the public and professionals, to remind people that “Safeguarding is everybody’s business” and that concerns about abuse or neglect should continue to be reported to the Local Authority as normal during the Covid -19 pandemic.
 
Safeguarding Week 2020 will promote and raise awareness on how to report abuse of children, young people and adults, in North Yorkshire and the City of York and is supported by the Safeguarding Adults Boards, Safeguarding Children’s Partnerships and Community Safety Partnerships. 
Representatives from each Partnership have met to develop proposals and plans for a coordinated social media campaign that makes use of and sign posts to, existing resources. As part of this #TellUsYourConcerns has been developed for use during Safeguarding Week 2020.

The overarching theme throughout the week will be How to report a safeguarding concern. In North Yorkshire, each day will also focus on a different safeguarding area as follows:

Keeping Safe Online
Fraud/Scamming
Online abuse

Wednesday 24th June
