National Safeguarding Week

National Safeguarding Adults Week 2020

Your support resulted in the most successful Safeguarding Adults Week ever! 

For Safeguarding Adults Week 2020: 

  • Over 450 organisations signed up to receive resources and support the week. 
  • Over 12 million people were reached on Twitter alone using the hashtag #SafeguardingAdultsWeek!  
  • More than 3,000 individuals and organisations posted about the week on Twitter alone. 

Due to the COVID restrictions, this year we were limited as to what we could do, as no face to face events or circulation of leaflets or posters was prohibited. So, this year we put all our hard work into our social media campaign for each days key theme:

  • Monday – Safeguarding and Wellbeing
  • Tuesday –Adult Grooming
  • Wednesday – Understanding Legislation
  • Thursday – Creating Safer Places
  • Friday – Organisational Abuse
  • Saturday – Sport & Activity
  • Sunday – Safeguarding in Your Community

We will be tweeting daily with both local and national organisations tweets as well retweeting other twitter threads.

We will be tweeting a video from the Independent Chair, Simon Turpitt and from other partner organisations throughout the week and we ask that where possible for your organisation help promote the SAB by retweeting @SurreySAB and sharing the board website https://www.surreysab.org.uk/

A list of the Ann Craft key themes and SSAB proposed tweets, it would be appreciated if agencies could use the tweets and topics but we appreciate at this busy time that you may have different ways of supporting Safeguarding Adults week.

Please keep referring back as new videos and presentations will be added throughout the week.
