National Safeguarding Week 2018
12-17 November is National Safeguarding Week, with organisations across Wales working to raise the profile of this important national issue.
Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Councils are working with their partners including the Cwm Taf Health Board and South Wales Police to make sure everyone is aware of the signs of abuse or neglect in children or adults and how they can report a concern.
During the week, awareness-raising events for the general public and professionals have been arranged in Cwm Taf (Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf) to reinforce key messages around safeguarding.
The two events that are open to the public are the Adult Safeguarding Event at Keir Hardie Health Park, Merthyr Tydfil on Wednesday, 14th November from 10am until 3pm and the Family Fun Day at Y Pant School, Pontyclun on Saturday, 17th November from 11am until 3pm.
Chairs of the Cwm-Taf Safeguarding Board, Gio Isingrini and Lisa Curtis-Jones, said:
“The key theme this year is exploitation. Exploitation takes many forms, including financial, radicalisation, modern slavery and human trafficking. National Safeguarding Week helps us to focus on our commitment to keep children, young people and vulnerable adults safe - it’s a reminder that safeguarding is central and pivotal to everyone's work here in Cwm Taf.”
“We work closely with partner agencies every day, and there’s much to celebrate, but there’s also much to do. We all have a duty to listen to the voices of the vulnerable, and act on what we hear.”
By working together we really can make a difference.
