Key Learning Points:
- Who is most at risk of abuse
- The 6 key principles of adult safeguarding
- The different kinds of abuse and neglect
- How to recognise an adult may be at risk of abuse
- When to report your concerns to the appropriate authorities
Anyone can be a victim of abuse and safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
Our Awareness of Safeguarding Adults course explores what adult abuse is, how to recognise the signs of abuse, and the procedures to follow to report suspected abuse of adults with extra care and support needs. It is particularly useful for people whose role involves meeting "at risk" adults, such as jobs dealing with the public, but it is important for all workers to be aware of this topic.
This course is suitable as an overview of the topic of adult safeguarding. For a more in-depth treatment of the subject, see our Introduction to Safeguarding Adults course (which includes our Awareness course as its first module).

The Importance of Safeguarding Training
Every man, woman, and child has the basic human right to live a life without abuse. Sadly, this is a right that millions of people all over the world are forced to live without.
Safeguarding is the act of protecting a person's right to live in safety – free from abuse, harm, and neglect. Safeguarding practices apply to both vulnerable adults and children.
Training in safeguarding protects both the adults at risk and the employee who notices the signs, as they will be equipped to know what to do in those circumstances.
