Safeguarding Adults Course Overview:

Our Online Adult Safeguarding course has been created because, first and foremost, every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy, happy and treated well, regardless of race, age, sex or location. When these rights are abused in some way, it’s wrong. Therefore, it is vital that guidelines, policies, and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception, to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.

Every person, regardless of their age, sex, religion, ethnicity or background has the right to a healthy, happy life. Adult safeguarding is about minimising and managing the risks to vulnerable individuals.
