Safeguarding Adults: Everyone’s Responsibility

Voluntary Centre Services offers information resources and a programme of awareness training and support around Safeguarding Adults, specifically for the voluntary and community sector.

The project aims to:

  • Highlight and promote effective safeguarding arrangements to prevent harm and reduce the risk of abuse and neglect
  • Increase awareness of adult safeguarding legislation, procedures and how to recognise signs of abuse
  • Provide information advice and training to ensure preventative activities and intervention are embedded within the third sector
  • Upskill the third sector workforce and ensure that organisations recognise their responsibilities to safeguard adults

 

The training programme explores these questions:

  • What is ‘adult safeguarding’ and how does it affect each and every one of us?
  • Who are adults at risk?
  • How do I recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse?
  • What can I do if I am concerned that someone is being harmed?
  • What can we all do to reduce the risk of harm?

Free one to one support is also available for community organisations looking to develop or refresh safeguarding procedures.
