The aim of Calderdale Safeguarding Week is to raise awareness of the role of ‘everyone’ in safeguarding vulnerable children and adults at risk and to highlight available support and intervention in Calderdale, in all localities, voluntary and statutory sectors. In addition to activities and learning events, there will be market stalls held in localities which will provide an opportunity for a range of agencies to provide information about their services and organisations to members of the public and professionals.  It is hoped the range of activities and events will increase knowledge about safeguarding issues and should impact positively on behaviours and attitude so that the welfare and safety of more children and young people and adults at risk are promoted.

Safeguarding week is 9th - 15th March.  For more information visit
