Safeguarding Awareness for Everyone Week


 (SAFE) Week 2019

SAFE week is a local annual campaign to raise awareness about protecting children and vulnerable adults from abuse and harm, however safeguarding our residents is a year round responsibility for all of us.

This year SAFE week will be held from 23rd - 29th September and the focus is on Scams Awareness. You can find out more about scams from Friends Against Scams and National Trading Standards.

There will be a number of events taking place across the County, and you can find out more about a range of scams during SAFE week on Northumberland County Council’s Facebook page.

We would like you to support us by promoting the events that will be happening during the week. You may consider holding an event yourself; or by raising awareness within your organisation during staff briefings; and most importantly by speaking to the people that you are providing services to.

If you are thinking of holding an event please let us know by contacting
