The Local Safeguarding Adults Boards in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton are proud to support National Safeguarding Adults Week, taking place from the 20th to the 24th November 2023. We will be working with our partner organisations and local communities to promote National Safeguarding Adults Week to raise awareness of a range of important issues relating to the abuse or neglect of adults with care and support needs. Each day during National Safeguarding Adults Week, we will be shining a spotlight on a specific theme. Please use the daily links below to find out more:
Monday 20th November: What’s My Role in Safeguarding Adults?
Tuesday 21st November: Let’s Start Talking – Taking The Lead on Safeguarding in Your Organisation
Wednesday 22nd November: Who Cares For The Carers? Secondary and Vicarious Trauma
Thursday 23rd November: Adopting a Trauma Informed approach to Safeguarding Adults
Friday 24th November: Listen, Learn, Lead – Co-Production With Experts by Experience
Additionally, here in Hampshire as part of the work for National Safeguarding Adults Week, we are running a survey to help the HSAB understand how we can support people to report concerns about people’s safety. This will be used to inform our strategic work going forward. The survey closes on 3 Dec 23 and can be accessed via the link below, or the attached QR code, please share this within your organisation and distribution lists:
