Awareness of Safeguarding Adults

Protecting Adults from Potential Harm and Neglect

Course Overview

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 introduction to 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).
