Level 3 Principles of Safeguarding and Protecting Children, Young People or Vulnerable Adults: 1-day course.

Safeguarding is how we can protect children, young people, and vulnerable adults from abuse or neglect by another person’s actions or lack of actions. 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.

This course is designed for all persons, no matter the 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 to safeguard themselves in everyday work while seeking help and to report the incident identified.
