Whatever their role, everyone working in the adult health and social care sector has an absolute responsibility to safeguard the individuals in their care against potential harm or abuse. Managers, practitioners, operational and support staff must be competent and capable of recognising the signs of potential abuse and know when, how and where to report any concerns, including whistle-blowing. There is a statutory obligation to undertake bespoke learning at least once every three years. Safeguarding courses are delivered by Learning in Wiltshire, in accordance with the National Competency Framework for Safeguarding Adults.
Courses are available include: Safeguarding Adults (Group A) – for all staff in health and social care services, and Safeguarding Adults (Group B) – for managers of care services.
