Safeguarding Week 2018

Spectrum are working together with Wakefield Council and other partners in supporting Safeguarding Week 2018. The week aims to bring together people from different sectors including local authority, police, health and education, to share their experience and learn how to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from harm.

Safeguarding means those most vulnerable from harm, abuse and exploitation. This covers issues such as domestic abuse, suicide awareness, child sex exploitation and substance misuse.

As part of the public information day on Monday 25th June, the Spectrum mobile unit will be outside Wakefield Cathedral between 09:30 till 13:00 with other partners including the West Yorkshire Police and Samaritans. Come along and talk to us about any safeguarding issues you may have, and for a free cup of tea!

If you have any safeguarding concerns about a child or vulnerable adult, contact 0345 8 503 503 or if they’re in immediate danger, call the Police on 999.

Follow us on Twitter @SpectrumSharp to keep up to date with a range of Safeguarding topics.
