Safeguarding & Domestic Violence Information for Workers

Safeguarding Training

The Safeguarding Adults Training Programme has recently been revised to take account of the Care Act changes, and also feedback from previous course participants. As a result, the following changes have been made to the courses:

  • Courses now have new titles and revised content
  • Raising A Safeguarding Referral and Multi-Agency Roles in the Safeguarding Process now incorporate the Threshold Tool Guidance, which used to be delivered as a seperate half-day course
  • Mental Capacity Act 2005 & Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLs) - these were originally two half day courses; they are now one full day course

Training Courses

There is no face to face training for Safeguarding Adults Basic Awarenesss. Alternative training resources for this, are available via a e-learning module and a workbook. Details of both can be obtained if you call the office.
