A programme of keeping vulnerable people safe is being coordinated by CWMPAS (formerly Wales Co-operative Centre) and CYSUR (Child and Youth Safeguarding: Unifying the Region) for National Safeguarding Week which starts on 14 November.

The programme was designed around the challenges many people experience as we move through the covid pandemic.

The event will be attended by professionals such as education professionals, nurses, police officers and social care staff. The children and young people who were involved in developing the programme will also be there.

The week will include a multi-agency conference on domestic abuse hosted by Dyfed Powys Police, a webinar revisiting some of the themes associated with the Operation Jasmine review into the neglect of older people in care homes, and an event aimed specifically at schools and education staff to promote the positive emotional health and wellbeing of children post-pandemic.

In addition, the programme will launch a safeguarding training resource and video animation for professionals created by children and young people from Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Powys. This will take place on the 18 November at Parc-y–Scarlets stadium in Llanelli.
