Safeguarding vulnerable adults

Principles

Through experience, knowledge and insight gathered over many years of working within the area of child sexual abuse we have gained knowledge of factors that are also relevant for staff responsible for safeguarding vulnerable adults.  Some of the same principles apply, and there are some similar patterns and themes which will help colleagues who work with vulnerable adults in terms of recognising and acting to safeguard vulnerable people.

This course also explores practice  issues, attitudes and dilemmas for staff who offer care services to alleged or convicted violent and/or child sexual abusers because they now require adult care services.
