Sunderland Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) participates in National Safeguarding Adults Week and in 2022 this is 21st – 27th 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.

Later this year we’ll add resources to help organisations join in with Safeguarding Adults Week 2022 and the sharing of key safeguarding adults messages.

In the meantime, below are links to some resources that SSAB has developed which organisations can use to raise awareness of safeguarding adults all year round.

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