Wolves support Safeguarding Adults Week

Wolves will be supporting Safeguarding Adults Week, which takes place between the 16th and 22nd of November.

Promoted by the Ann Craft Trust, a national charity that aims to minimise the risk of abuse of disabled children and adults, Safeguarding Adults Week aims to put a very important topic in the spotlight.

Each day of Safeguarding Adults Week, the Ann Craft Trust will focus on a different safeguarding theme, all of which are broad, and cover many different areas of focus. Wolves will reflect these themes on the safeguarding pages of wolves.co.uk, where resources will be shared with staff and supporters. 

The club has a dedicated standalone safeguarding policy for adults at risk which can be found here, but will also launch a new, easy-read, version during Safeguarding Adults Week on wolves.co.uk.

Wolves’ head of safeguarding, Lisa Carter, said: “We are really pleased to be supporting and backing Safeguarding Adults Week 2020 at Wolves and we are looking forward to learning new things and putting them into practice to improve people’s experiences at the club.

“At Wolves we strive to ensure that children, young people and vulnerable adults are treated with respect, and we are committed to hearing their voices and creating a positive environment that is supportive, warm and welcoming.

“We are fortunate to have a dedicated disability access officer in Laura Wright, who is also able to drive best practise across throughout club in safeguarding children and adults with disabilities, and has also ensured that she has stayed in touch with many of our supporters who are most in need throughout the pandemic.

“While we continue to work very hard in this area, and safeguarding all children and adults, we recognise there are always things we can do better, and we are committed to supporting staff to complete additional training throughout Safeguarding Adults Week 2020.”
