The National Safeguarding Adults Network are launching the first ever National Safeguarding Adults Week from the 19th – 26th November 2018.
Safeguarding adults is a responsibility for every sport and physical activity organisation and getting it right is crucial to widening participation and ensuring safe sport for everyone involved.
The week will involve a range of activities to raise awareness, each day concentrating on a different risk, with the weekend focusing specifically on safeguarding adults in sport. There is plenty that your organisation can do to join in with the week in order to raise awareness for safeguarding and develop best practice for adults at risk.
