Protecting vulnerable adults is both a moral responsibility and a legal duty of care. Produced with a consortium of leading health and social care organisations (including Mencap, the Royal College of Nursing and St John Ambulance), this programme is essential for anyone who comes into contact with vulnerable adults through their work or voluntary activities.
The programme will give you the key information you need to protect vulnerable adults in your care including: what abuse is, the key signs and indicators of abuse, people who may pose a threat, and most importantly, what to do if you suspect someone is being, or has been, abused.
- Modular, bite-size format provides an easy way to learn the essentials.
- There are four concise learning modules, four accompanying questionnaires and full instructions throughout.
- A personalised consortium accredited certificate on successful completion provides evidence of learning.
- There is confirmation of the correct answers to reinforce the participant’s knowledge.
- Available in paper-based and online learning methods.
- Brings paid and volunteer staff quickly up-to-speed.
- People with different working arrangements and in different locations receive the same clear, consistent messages.
- The programme can be used as a pre-employment, induction or refresher tool.
- The reassurance of knowing that the content has been written and approved by experts.
