Although anyone can be a victim of abuse or neglect, sadly, due to increased vulnerability, those with care or support needs are more at risk.

Our comprehensive course takes an in-depth look at safeguarding, exploring the different types of safeguarding issues that may occur in a care setting, and your responsibilities in ensuring that your clients live in a safe environment, free from abuse or neglect.
