Learning Together to Safeguard the City

The Learning Together to Safeguard the City fortnight is a new way of talking about how we all work together to keep people safe and well. It is delivered in partnership between the Safeguarding Adults Board, the Local Safeguarding Children Board and the Safe in the City Partnership Board, as well as Brighton & Hove City Council, other statutory partners including Sussex Police and Health, and a range of charities and community groups. The first fortnight of events ran from Thursday 26th November – Thursday 10th December 2015 and brought together work around Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults, and the wider campaign around the 16 Days of Action against Domestic and Sexual Violence alongside other forms of Violence against Women and Girls.

You can view the full programme of events here and if you missed any of our sessions you can view some of the presentations and resources below.

We also posted a series of #EveryonesResponsibility blogs throughout the fortnight where key figures in the city discussed what Safeguarding means to them. You can read these here and view photos from the events.
