ADULT SAFEGUARDING - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Mon 24 April 2017, 09:30 – 12:30 BST
Until the Care Act 2104 there was no law specifically dealing with safeguarding adults who might be at risk of abuse. The Act recognises and reinforces that all staff and volunteers in any organisation who have contact with adults who could be at risk of abuse or neglect, have a duty to act if they have any concern that an adult is being abused, neglected or exploited.
This course is suitable for anybody working within a Voluntary or Community organisation that may come into contact with vulnerable adults.
The course offers delegates a basic knowledge of safeguarding. By the end of the course participants will understand:-
- What is safeguarding?
- What is abuse and neglect?
- What is mental capacity
- Responding to safeguarding concerns
