‘Safeguarding is everybody’s business’

Commissioner Zoe will discuss the role of the North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner in safeguarding as part of a week-long focus on the subject between Monday 20 and Friday 24 June.

This year’s theme is that ‘Safeguarding is everybody’s business’ and a programme of 50 sessions, the majority open to all members of the public, will focus on topics such as spotting signs of radicalisation, fraud awareness and protection and supporting children and young people impacted by domestic abuse.

Commissioner Zoe’s workshop on Monday 20 June between 11am and 12noon will examine her role, and that of her office, in safeguarding and look at the relationship with North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, local authorities, health partners and the public to keep people safe and feeling safe.

During the event, she will highlight what made her want to run for the position, her manifesto commitments to the public and how these have translated into her Police & Crime Plan and Fire & Rescue Plan. It will also focus on key areas of work, including:

  • The new Victims’ Centre – where North Yorkshire and York’s Adult Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) and Child Sexual Assault Assessment Service (CSAAS) will be located.
  • The overarching violence against women and girls’ strategy – developed with statutory partners, and those with lived experience and the organisations representing them

Among the other partners involved in the week are North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, IDAS, Safeguarding Adults Boards, Children’s Safeguarding Partnerships, and Community Safety Partnerships across North Yorkshire, the City of York and East Riding.
