The safeguarding adults course is a practical training course for those who work in the social care sector or who have a responsibility in caring for vulnerable adults. It covers key safeguarding procedures, the types of abuse and neglect, how to report your concerns regarding the abuse of vulnerable adults, and key legislation.
Anyone with duty of care responsibilities must have an awareness of adult safeguarding practices and the fundamental principles of The Care Act 2014.

You will learn what to do if you suspect a victim of abuse, the steps to report your concerns, how to recognise the signs of abuse and the measures that must be taken to ensure a safe environment for all adults under your care and supervision.
