Tuesday's Safeguarding Week Message of the Day

It's Safeguarding Week 20th June – 24th June 2022; help us to improve awareness and understanding of safeguarding adults in Leeds.  

Always Care

In Leeds, unfortunately too many people have died in situations of self-neglect.

The Leeds Safeguarding Adults Board has undertaken reviews in relation to some people who died, to identify how organisations can work better together to provide support.

The ALWAYS Care message has come from these reviews:

"ALWAYS Care" - ALWAYS respond to self-neglect, small steps make a big difference:

  • Awareness, 
  • Look for the person, 
  • What is really happening? 
  • Assess the risk, 
  • Your time to act,                            
  • Solutions focussed

Our Safeguarding Week, Tuesday request, is to ask all organisations in Leeds to make sure their services and practitioners know about this ALWAYS Care message. Working in this way can make a real difference for people in Leeds.
