Safeguarding Adults Level 2

Vulnerability is a word most commonly associated with children, yet there are many conditions or circumstances that can make an adult vulnerable too. Age, mental health, disability, substance misuse and learning difficulties are just some of the factors that can make it difficult for a person to be entirely in control of their own personal care. In such situations, it is imperative that these vulnerable adults are appropriately safeguarded by responsible and well-trained care practitioners.

This Safeguarding Adults Level 2 course has been developed by healthcare training specialists, and is aimed at those who work with, or who are likely to come into contact with at-risk adults. This Level 2 course explores current legislation, categories of abuse, the signs and symptoms to look out for and action to take should abuse be suspected.
