Safeguarding is how we protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse or neglect by the actions, or lack of actions, of another person. In order to safeguard and protect persons from abuse or neglect, we need to learn how to identify vulnerable individuals and take the necessary steps to stop abuse and neglect.

Everyone has the right to be safe and live without the fear of abuse, neglect or exploitation and this course aims to teach you how to recognise the signs of abuse and neglect and what actions you can take to stop this from happening and occurring again in the future. Abuse, neglect and exploitation can occur anywhere and by anyone, quite often being a person of trust.

This course is designed for all persons, no matter what field they are directly involved in, to give them the tools and knowledge to make a difference in a vulnerable person’s life. It will also let the practitioner reporting the abuse know how they can safeguard themselves in everyday work while seeking help and reporting the incident identified.

Learning aims:
* Consider the safeguarding legislation and guidance
* Look at indicators of abuse and neglect
* Make sound judgements
* Consider the communication needed to take action
* State your role and responsibilities as a safeguarding lead
* Be aware of how to and how not to share information
* Deal effectively with and reporting of allegations and complaints
* Have an understanding of assessment and marking in safeguarding reports

Assessment: At the end of the session there will be a short exam, with multiple choice and short answer questions
Pre-requisite: You must be a minimum of 18 years upon course commencement
You will need identification to take this exam (either a driving license or passport, or both a birth certificate and utility bill).
