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.
PLEASE NOTE* The Devon Safeguarding Adults Board have aligned their training offer to the Adult Safeguarding Roles and Competencies Intercollegiate Document 2018. Therefore, the adult safeguarding training levels have changed. This Level 2 Face to Face Adult Safeguarding for Provider was previously called Level 3. The content of this module has not changed. If you have recently attended the Level 3 Face to Face Adult Safeguarding Training for Providers, then you do not need to attend this training course.
*PLEASE NOTE* 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 The Safeguarding Adults Training
