Safeguarding means protecting people’s health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. It’s fundamental to high-quality health and social care.
The Devon Safeguarding Adults Board has training that providers and third sector can access rather than having to source this themselves.
The cost of the training is met by the Devon Safeguarding Adults Board for the majority of the Organisations that attend however there are some exceptions.
If you are interested in the training then please contact Helena Seward, Safeguarding Adults Practice Lead, Devon Safeguarding Adults Board.
