Safeguarding Awareness Week

Safeguarding Week 2020

The annual safeguarding awareness week is planned for Monday 16th to Friday 20th November 2020. You can read about this year’s Safeguarding Awareness Week and enrol on events.

Rotherham Safeguarding Children Partnership, Rotherham Safeguarding Adults Board along with Safer Rotherham Partnership are working together to host safeguarding week 2020 – November 16th – 20th.

The key message is that ‘Safeguarding is Everybody's Business’.

Some of the key themes within safeguarding awareness week this year are :

  • Domestic abuse and the impact for adults and children

  • Transition safeguarding and from child to adulthood

  • Trauma informed practice and how abuse impacts on children and adults

  • Mental Health and suicide (Be The One)

  • Teenagers living with mental health needs

  • Children living with parental mental health needs

A variety of online workshops / webinars are available to PROFESSIONALS, WORKERS AND VOLUNTEERS and there are events for the public.

For some events you'll need to book a place to attend. Keep checking this webpage and we'll be adding events throughout October and November.

It's never too late to plan an event for Safeguarding Week!

Simply email us your flyer at and we will make sure we advertise it alongside our programme.
