South Yorkshire Safeguarding Awareness Week 2020 is coming!

Safeguarding Awareness Week 2020 #SAW20 will be 6 to 10 July 2020 and preparations are already well underway for a week packed with training, activities and events which will be the fifth time Barnsley (we were the first in South Yorkshire) will have had an annual Safeguarding Awareness Week.

All the BSCP and BSAB events will be in a programme for the week on the Safeguarding websites and you can book on via POD, unless other details are given.  

The programme for the week will be updated regularly between now and July and every event will have a briefing sheet to explain what the event is about, when and where it is being held, who it is aimed at and who the lead agency is.  There will also be details of how to book on to events.

Get involved 

The launch event for #SAW20 will be at Barnsley Sixth Form College and there will be a ‘wrap-around’ Market Place Event, on the morning of Monday 6 July.

Colleagues of agencies and services who would like a stand in the Market Place (which will also be in the Sixth Form College) are asked to email Nigel Leeder at your earliest convenience. 

This is a very popular event for you to network and showcase your service; what you offer to Children, Young People, Families and Vulnerable Adults, the referral pathways into your service and also how we can all work better together to safeguard the people of Barnsley.


See me and care campaign

See me and care campaign is organised by Kirklees Safeguarding Adults Board. It's aimed at health and social care workers. It's all about putting 'yourself in others shoes' and thinking about the level of care you provide and whether this is how you would like yourself or those you care for to be treated.

Thanks to Kirklees for allowing us to use this video.
