2018 Safeguarding Week

2018 Safeguarding Week

Turning Lives Around (TLA) is promoting Safeguarding Week (25 June to 1 July) with a series of events to highlight how it is tackling abuse and how others can take action.

Using locations across the organisation staff and service users are set to highlight how domestic abuse, mental health, forced marriage and providing awareness on protecting children and victims of human trafficking are all threats to a healthy society.

Turning Lives Around has always helped those vulnerable in society and want to share their experience and expertise with others through a range of informative activities.

Some of the events are light hearted intended to ensure that the serious message of abuse is remembered because people enjoyed the events during the week.

Janet Spencer, Chief Executive said: “Abuse of any kind is wrong and we want to highlight how it can occur, ways to identify it and how we are helping to tackle it through our work.   Everyone at Turning Lives Around is enthusiastic about tackling abuse so I look forward to an energetic week.”

Turning Lives Around will be hosting the following sessions:

Francis House – Healthy relationships & safeguarding from domestic abuse, Safeguarding Treasure Hunt
