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.
