Women’s safeguarding event at Asha a success

The Asha Neighbourhood Project in Beeston recently hosted a successful Safeguarding Awareness event.

The event was organised by Tahena, Asha’s Health Development worker and Syedun from the Sanctuary project, and built on the successes of past sessions on Safeguarding. Asha organised a range of topics and activities to discuss with women living in South Leeds and raise awareness of important safeguarding issues.

The event covered topics such as child exploitation, online safety for women and children, female genital mutilation, mental health, neglect, modern slavery, sexual health, domestic abuse, suicide prevention and much more. The sessions have been designed to stimulate discussion and share best practice in supporting people to be safe from abuse and neglect.

Women who took part in the session reported feeling confident in recognising signs of abuse and neglect and recording and reporting safeguarding concerns.
