Brand new video debuts during National Safeguarding Week
A hard hitting video which raises awareness of the need to report concerns of abuse of any kind has been launched by the North Wales Safeguarding Board.
The Launch of ‘Gweld Rhywbeth, Dywedwch Rhywbeth’ ‘See Something, Say Something’ coincides with National Safeguarding Week and focus on two real life scenarios which illustrate a number of different kinds of abuse taking place and how individuals are in a quandary over whether or not to intervene.
The scenes show two individuals who come across some evidence of physical, emotional and financial abuse which is confirmed as the storyline develops.
The video was shown for the first time this week at a regional safeguarding conference held in Llandudno Junction.
Jenny Williams, who is the Chair of the North Wales Safeguarding Board, said: “With so much focus on national safeguarding week, it is an ideal time to raise awareness of the different types of abuse that could be going on in our communities.
This is a hard hitting video and that is for a reason. We really want it to make people think and we have brought the issue to life through telling compelling stories based upon real life events, it can help professionals from many walks of life understand these complex issues. Understanding and relating to these stories is the first step towards individuals and organisations being better able to support those at risk.
“We want this video to be shared far and wide so that we can make a difference, make people think and more importantly make people act if they have any kinds of concern”.
