This is an opportunity for organisations to come together to raise awareness of important safeguarding issues.
This year’s theme is ‘Creating Safer Cultures’ and each day of the national week there will be a different topic to focus on which will hopefully lead to conversations taking place around the theme of creating safer cultures within the East Riding.
Promoting safer cultures is all about how organisations and individuals can take steps to minimise harm occurring in the first instance, whilst simultaneously ensuring correct policies and procedures are in place so that safeguarding concerns that are raised are recognised and responded to effectively.

Thursday, 18 November – Adult grooming and the Ann Craft Trust grooming and exploitation conference
People can experience grooming and exploitation at any age and in a wide range of contexts.
Friday, 19 November – Creating safer organisational cultures
Today is a focus on including voices of people less likely to raise concerns, whilst promoting reflection and learning in safeguarding practice to promote safer cultures.
Saturday, 20 and Sunday, 21 November – Safeguarding and you
These days are to highlight that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and everyone needs to play their part to effectively create safer cultures.
