Access our multi-agency Safeguarding Training

The abuse and neglect of children and adults at risk presents a significant learning challenge. It is imperative that frontline staff and volunteers have an understanding of the key themes of abuse and neglect and the frameworks in place to manage concerns.

Workers, regardless of whether their primary client group is children or adults, should have an awareness that abuse can affect people across the life course and that there are policy and procedures in place to support anyone who may be at risk.
