Safeguarding Week – Everyone’s Responsibility

10 Jul 2015 12:06:50

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has organised a series of events for its staff to highlight its commitment to protecting vulnerable people.

Members of the Trust’s safeguarding team have arranged the week long programme as part of their ongoing work to ensure all at the Trust understand the important role they have when it comes to raising concerns, Safeguarding Week – Everyone’s Responsibility took place from 6-10 July.

Throughout the week, the Trust has welcomed several safeguarding experts to lead talks on topics such as how local organisations can work together to support members of the community and how to spot signs of abuse. ‘Stop the Shift’ presentations have been held throughout the week about adult and child safeguarding and members of the safeguarding team have been going out to all areas across the Trust to deliver this information.

June Lovett, Assistant Chief Nurse, worked alongside the safeguarding team to organise the week’s activities. She said: “It’s important that all our colleagues recognise that they are responsible for raising concerns if they suspect someone is suffering from neglect, violence, sexual or physical abuse.
“By working together we can help to protect vulnerable people and the great interaction from our colleagues in this week’s activities has shown how committed we all are to doing this.”

Following the Safeguarding Week activities the Trust will continue to place safeguarding high on its agenda to support those at risk to get the help they need.

Briefings about adult and child safeguarding have been sent out to all colleagues at the Trust as part of the training on this subject which all colleagues are required to have.
