Sandwell’s Safeguarding Adults Awareness Week is getting under way today (16 – 22 November) to support National Safeguarding Adults Week 2020.
Sandwell’s Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) brings together partners and agencies across the borough to keep adults safe from harm and protect their rights. The awareness week will have an online focus, using social media and online resources to highlight real and important safeguarding matters which affect communities and individuals as well as raising awareness and sharing best practice among professionals and the public.
Over the coming week, each day will focus on a key area of abuse or risk that some people in Sandwell suffer daily and how they, or their loved ones, can seek the help and advice they need to keep them safe and well.
• Monday – Safeguarding and Wellbeing
• Tuesday – Adult Grooming
• Wednesday – Understanding Legislation
• Thursday – Creating Safer Places
• Friday – Organisational Abuse
• Saturday – Sport & Activity

“See something, do something. Safeguarding is everybody’s business.”
