Learning aims

Despite the inception of the Independent Safeguarding Authority, adult and elder abuse still remains a largely ignored issue when compared to child abuse. Our training covers all forms of abuse which may be suffered by vulnerable adults and is intended to equip your staff with the necessary skills to recognise and report the signs associated with abuse.
