Sunderland Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) participates in National Safeguarding Week and in 2021 this is 15th – 21st November.  Locally it is used to highlight Sunderland’s Safeguarding Adults Awareness Campaign, coordinated by SSAB. The Board has membership from a range of organisations who help and support people in Sunderland with health, social care and other issues. These organisations want to help people to have a greater awareness of what being safe means.

Below are links to some resources that SSAB has developed which organisations can use to raise awareness of safeguarding adults.


Abuse of adults is wrong. Help to keep people safe – your friend, your neighbour, your relative, yourself. Recognise it. Report it. Stop it.
