Safeguarding Week 2017

This year, Safeguarding week is focusing on raising awareness about 'What is Safeguarding?' amongst the public and encouraging children and young people, adults with care and support needs, their families, parents /carers, friends and neighbours to find out more from the Wolverhampton Safeguarding website.

Organisations and their staff are encouraged to:

* use the posters (see links below) to create a display in a public space

* devise ways of discussing 'what safeguarding is' with those who use their services.

    Engagement activities are planned in care homes, with the public via a pop up shop in the city centre and with faith groups.


    1. EVERYONE has a part to play in keeping vulnerable people (adults with care and support needs, and children and young people) safe from abuse and neglect and promoting their wellbeing.

    2. Safeguarding is .... about all the things that we can do together to identify, respond and support people who are being abused, or neglected, or whose wellbeing is being compromised.

    3. Help and support is available - safeguarding processes help people and work with the individual and their family to meet their needs.

    4. Anyone can raise a concern - tel: 01902 555392 (to safeguard a child) or 01902 551199 (to safeguard an adult)

    5. Wolverhampton Safeguarding website is the best place to find out more.


      ​A number of resources will soon be available for partners to use to spread the word about 'What Safeguarding is', how to raise a concern, and encourage people to look at the safeguarding website.
