Wakefield launches Safeguarding Awareness Week

It is hoped vulnerable people in the Wakefield District who are suffering from issues including bullying and mental health problems will seek support.

As part of Safeguarding Week, organisations are coming together to offer help in the City Centre - and in Castleford on Friday.

Edwina Harrison, who chairs the Wakefield and Safeguarding Children's board, says it's important to give everyone an opportunity to get help.

She said: "It could be life changing. If you think of the hundred people who spoke to the Samaritans, people today who are going to victim support, who might not even have come forward to talk about what happened to them".
