Their last issue featured a short overview of the work of the Western Bay Safeguarding Boards, who are doing excellent work in ensuring the safety of both children and vulnerable adults across the region.
November 2016 was a particularly busy month for their Safeguarding colleagues as a whole host of workshops and awareness-raising activities took place to mark National Safeguarding Week (14 - 18 November 2016).
Just one of the many events in the Safeguarding calendar was the annual ’Safeguarding Matters’ conference held in the Liberty Stadium, Swansea on 25 November 2016.
The conference attracted around 300 delegates and featured a packed agenda of informative presentations, powerful case studies and a Q&A session with a panel of professionals in the field.
Keith Towler, Vice Chair of the National Independent Safeguarding Board for Wales chaired the conference and emphasised the value of such occasions, saying: "It was a delight to chair the day and to see so many practitioners taking an active interest in safeguarding children and adults across the Western Bay area. It was a great opportunity to learn from others and to discuss practice concerns. It was a very successful day and I hope next year’s event will build on this achievement".
Preparations are already underway for National Safeguarding Week 2017 (13-17 November 2017) and they look forward to bringing you more on the work of the Boards in the future.
