Course Overview

When an adult is at risk of abuse or neglect, following the correct safeguarding procedures is vitally important.

Our Introduction to Safeguarding Adults course explores the principles and legislation around adult safeguarding, including when to report concerns to the local authorities. It presents three scenarios to show the safeguarding process in action.

Introduction to Safeguarding Adults includes our Awareness of Safeguarding Adults course as an introductory module. It builds on the knowledge gained in that course and is particularly useful for those whose role brings them into contact with "at risk" adults.

Adult safeguarding is built around the concept of empowering people to make informed decisions about their own lives. Where the processes fail, it's important to follow up on what went wrong to avoid it happening again.
