Safeguarding Adults Week 2022


November 11th, 2022

From Monday 21 November – Sunday 27 November is Safeguarding Adults Week 2022.

Since its launch, Safeguarding Adults Week has gone from strength to strength, with the 2021 campaign reaching an estimated 79.4 million people on Twitter alone. Safeguarding Adults Week 2022 promises to be the biggest yet.

2022 also happens to mark an important milestone for The Ann Craft Trust. As the Trust was first founded in 1992, during Safeguarding Adults Week they will be celebrating 30 years of Safeguarding Adults at Risk with a special charity dinner in Nottingham.

30 Years of Safeguarding Adults at Risk

Professor Todd Landman, FRSA, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Faculty of Social Sciences at The University of Nottingham, said:

“The Ann Craft Trust is the UK’s leading organisation with expert knowledge, policy formation and knowledge exchange in the broad and increasingly important area of safeguarding. Housed within the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Nottingham, the Trust has strong and productive relationships with staff and students, primarily in our School of Sociology and Social Policy, as well as with colleagues in the University’s world leading Rights Lab, which researches modern slavery.

“The Trust reaches a significant milestone this year as it celebrates its 30th Anniversary, and I am proud to attend the conference and work with and support the Trust to continue its success for the future.”

Dr Deborah Kitson, CEO of The Ann Craft Trust, said:

“This year is a really special year for the Ann Craft Trust as we celebrate our thirtieth anniversary. We were established in 1992 as NAPSAC, relaunched in 1998 as the Ann Craft Trust and have had quite a journey over the years. There have been events throughout the year looking at the work that has been done since our inception, what has been achieved and, importantly, what we need to focus on over the next 30 years.

“The Ann Craft Trust is now committed to safeguarding adults at risk and disabled young people of any form of abuse and harm. We are fortunate to work nationally with many individuals and a range of diverse organisations that share our commitment to ensuring that everyone can live their lives free of the fear of abuse.”
