Introduction to Safeguarding Adults

Do you have safeguarding responsibilities in your organisation?

Our half-day safeguarding awareness course is the first step for staff and volunteers working with adults and older people. The Care Act 2014 highlights the importance of safeguarding adults and the need for staff and volunteers within the voluntary, statutory and private sector to be well informed about safeguarding and to know what to do when a concern is raised, maintaining standards and care for vulnerable adults.
