Who is it for
This course is suitable for anyone who comes into contact with vulnerable
adults during the course of their work. It is suitable for carers who
work with the elderly, those with learning difficulties or those who have
mental health problems. The recommended maximum is 12 delegates.
This course aims to raise awareness of the legislation that applies to
vulnerable groups and how these policies can be applied in practice. It
covers different types of abuse that can occur and how to identify them,
how to develop a safeguarding culture and create a safe environment along
