'Safeguarding is Barnsley's Business' is our message to everyone as we prepare to launch our second Safeguarding Awareness Week from Monday 3 to Friday 7 July.

We'd love you to join our safeguarding professionals for a week of free activities to demonstrate our commitment to keeping families in Barnsley safe and to spread the message that safeguarding is everyone's business.

Her Honour, Judge Sarah Wright will be the key note speaker at the launch of the event on Monday 3 July at Barnsley Town Hall.
