Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults At Risk Training

Course Description

It remains a dreadful fact that abuse of vulnerable adults happens within our society. Staff who work within health and social care settings require high quality training to ensure that they fully understand how to properly look after those in their care. This course covers all core aspects of vulnerable adult protection to help staff recognise potential signs of abuse and understand how to take action.

The full day course is recommended in most cases especially for those with significant contact with vulnerable adults or who are new to the subject.

We also offer a full day safeguarding vulnerable adults champion course.
