During Safeguarding Week, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and its partners are reminding the public about the services available to keep themselves, and everybody else, safe.
Each day, advice will be sent out on a theme, telling the community what signs they should be looking out for, and where to turn to if they have concerns about adults or children.
Although face-to-face events cannot be held during this year's event, messages on social media and the internet are telling the public that safeguarding services are still working round the clock in the East Riding.
The themes for the week are:
Monday: Keeping Safe
Tuesday: Domestic Abuse
Wednesday: Emotional Health and Wellbeing
Thursday: Online Safety
Councillor Vanessa Walker, portfolio holder for adult and carer services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "Often those suffering abuse or neglect do not realise or want to admit that they are a victim and so it is crucial that the awareness of these issues is raised so that people can be safeguarded appropriately."
Councillor Julie Abraham, portfolio holder for children, young people and education, said: "Keeping people safe from exploitation and harm is everyone's responsibility.
"If you are concerned about a child or young person, we need you to report it. There is a lot of help that is available for families."
Day four: Online safety
It's normal for many young people and even some adults to want to play games for long periods of time, especially during social distancing restrictions.
Problems can occur when a player's normal life is affected by their need to play. A player who is avoiding normal routines such as meal and toilet breaks, disrupted or reduced sleep, poor personal care and hygiene, and avoiding safe socialising and other fun activities could have a problem.
Parents can turn off in-app and in-game purchases and make sure bank cards aren't linked to game accounts, limit gaming time and consider their own online behaviour and use of devices.
