Safeguarding training for the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors

Anyone who works with adults in the community, either as a paid worker or volunteer, has a role to play in safeguarding adults and promoting their health and wellbeing. They need to have the right skills and knowledge to work with people to help and protect them.
