Safeguarding Adults in the Voluntary Sector
From Faith Pring
The University of Nottingham’s unique national charity that works to minimise the risk of abuse of disabled young people and adults at risk holds its annual safeguarding awareness campaign next week.
The Ann Craft Trust’s National Safeguarding Adults Week runs from Monday 18th November to Sunday 24th November with each day focusing on a different theme. The University’s iconic Trent Building will be lit up in green for the whole period to highlight the importance of the week and the work carried out by the Trust.
The events during the week are dedicated to the discussion of safeguarding adults at risk as well as raising awareness and sharing best practice among professionals and the public.
A highlight will be a one-day conference on Thursday 21st November to bring together health and social care practitioners and charities in the field to promote and share the latest research and knowledge about safeguarding. The Ann Craft Trust will also be launching this new video that provides the latest advice for anyone concerned about an adult who may be at risk of abuse.
