A SERIES of events are being arranged across North Wales in support of vulnerable adults and children.

The North Wales Safeguarding Board is participating in an Wales-wide Safeguarding Week (11 and 15 November) and it uses the opportunity to promote the work being done to safeguard children and adults across the region.

The board, North Wales Police, Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and local authorities are hosting the series of events to raise awareness on a wide range of safeguarding issues.

They range from learning lessons from adult and child protection reviews to supervision with midwives; self-neglect workshop; fire safety awareness and events on exploitation.

During the week, the Safeguarding Board will be arranging its annual conference at Conwy Business Centre in Llandudno Junction (Tuesday, 12 November), as well as hosting the North Wales launch of the All-Wales safeguarding procedures, taking place in Rhyl on Thursday, November 14.

Jenny Williams, chair of the Regional Safeguarding Children’s Board, said: “This is a vital opportunity for organisations to showcase the work that they do to protect and safeguard children, young people, adults and families/ carers across North Wales.

"National Safeguarding Week puts a national spotlight on issues affecting all communities and provides us in North Wales with an opportunity to share information about how we are working together to protect the most vulnerable in our society”.

Details of planned events are included on the North Wales Safeguarding Board website: www.northwalessafeguardingboard.wales and people are also asked to keep an eye on the social media accounts of the emergency services, health and their local council for details of any events locally.
