Frequently Asked Questions

Our Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults (advanced) course goes into more detail than our foundation course and includes more material.

This course covers much of what your employees will need to know to protect vulnerable adults and their responsibilities while working with vulnerable adults, but it may need to be supplemented with organisation-specific information.
