About the Course

Vulnerable adults rely on us for their care and safety. In order to promote and protect their welfare, a team approach is required, including external agencies. The information that you gather about an individual must be shared between organisations to help ensure that needs are assessed and the required support is in place. Every individual organisation has its own safeguarding lead, and you must follow any local policies that go alongside this generic module.

This course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
