We support safeguarding adults awareness month

Published 02 December 2019

This November marked Greenwich Council’s Safeguarding Adults Awareness Month, which saw staff from our Greenwich DVA service taking part in a timetable of activities to support the initiative. 

Throughout November, the team ran three domestic abuse awareness training sessions, aimed at front-line staff and professionals, highlighting best practice for working with survivors of abuse.

Staff also held a series of information stalls around Greenwich to raise awareness of our direct services for survivors, which include refuges, a confidential Referral and Advice Line and floating support service.

The final training session, which took place on 28th November, was incredibly timely, coinciding with 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls.

Commenting on the event, Caron Stowe, Deputy DVA Services Manager at Housing for Women, said: “We were delighted to take part in the Greenwich Safeguarding Adults Awareness month again this year.

“Safeguarding is everybody's business. Improved safeguarding of adults at risk of abuse throughout London is crucial, and we were pleased to offer specialist training to support the continuous development and sharing of best practice with our partners.”
