A new campaign which aims to keep adults 'stay safe and well' is due to be launched.

Lancashire Safeguarding Adults Week will see organisations such as the Lancashire Safeguarding Adults Board, charities and other partners come together to promote the importance of safeguarding and physical and mental wellbeing.

Lancashire Safeguarding Adults Week which starts today (Monday) comes hot on the heels of a package of measures aimed at supporting vulnerable people in Lancashire.

These include the return of the council's winter warm spaces, the Affordable Warmth Scheme and the council's Adult Social Care Winter Plan 2023-24, working with the NHS and partners to tackle challenges across the health and social care sectors in the coming cold months.

County Councillor Graham Gooch, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for Adult Social Care, said: "Safeguarding Adults Week is an essential time for organisations to come together to raise awareness of important safeguarding issues.

"We're offering vital advice on what to do if you're concerned about a vulnerable adult, identifying abuse, why safeguarding is important and how to encourage people to look out for each other.

"Good safeguarding means looking out for others and yourself, and we will be working with partner organisations very closely to promote the importance of both wellbeing and safeguarding, and combined with our package of winter support, we will be helping people in Lancashire to stay safe and well."
