OverviewWhen it comes to safeguarding adults and minimising the risk of abuse and neglect, there are a number of important responsibilities involved for those who may encounter vulnerable adults within their role. Our safeguarding adults level 2 training addresses these responsibilities and gives learners a deeper understanding of key safeguarding topics enabling them to apply the knowledge to their workplace. It introduces safeguarding as a topic, covering jargon, multi-agency working and best practice, as well as explaining how to identify the signs and symptoms of abuse, what to do if someone discloses information, and what you should do if you suspect a vulnerable adult is being abused.
