SG Adults WeekWarrington Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB) supported the Ann Craft Trust during Safeguarding Adults Week which took place 21st – 27th November. The aim was to highlight key safeguarding issues, facilitate conversations and to raise awareness of safeguarding best practice to enable more practitioners and members of the public to feel confident in recognising signs of abuse and neglect and reporting safeguarding concerns.

The theme for Safeguarding Adults Week 2022 was ‘Responding to Contemporary Safeguarding Challenges'. 

Each day, we focused on a specific topic to help facilitate conversations around the theme of responding to contemporary safeguarding challenges. Click on the themes below to read the information flyers and see what we had planned on each day.

White Ribbon Day and 16 Days of Action 2022 (November) +

WRD 22

Warrington Safeguarding Partnerships supported White Ribbon Day on 25th November and the 16 Days of Action which followed.

The White Ribbon Campaign engages men and boys to end male violence against women and girls. This year, White Ribbon Day falls on the same week as the start of the FIFA men’s World Cup, so the theme this year is to come together and start playing as a team to end violence against women and girls – that’s #TheGoal !

Lots of exciting events took place during this campaign including a bake sale fundraiser held at Warrington Borough Council.

During the campaign we raised around £400 for Warrington Women’s Aid. This donation will be used to enhance the support given to victims and their children.
