Safeguarding: Awareness – Postponed

Training Date: 15 April 2020

Wednesday 15 April 2020,  10am-4pm, LCVS, 151 Dale Street, Liverpool L2 2AH

Safeguarding: Awareness - Postponed

If you work with vulnerable adults or children, join us to gain a vital working knowledge of safeguarding in action. Ensure that your organisation is able to work responsibly and safely, without putting staff in vulnerable positions. What is safeguarding? In this context, safeguarding means understanding the various types of abuse and neglect and being able to identify the signs, knowing what steps to take if you suspect abuse is happening and knowing what to do if a child or adult discloses abuse.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 emergency, all LCVS training and events scheduled to take place before the end of April have now been postponed. We are currently exploring alternative training delivery methods. We will continue to monitor the situation and issue regular updates.

About this training

Delivered by experienced practitioners from Liverpool Social Care Partnership CIC, this training is designed to provide delegates with a basic awareness of safeguarding and the actions they should take if they have cause for concern.

By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • understand safeguarding in the context of the legal framework and local systems for safeguarding vulnerable people
  • define adult and child abuse
  • understand the different categories of abuse and how to recognise them
  • recognise some signs, indicators and symptoms of abuse
  • discuss why abuse is sometimes not reported
  • examine the do’s and don’ts of responding to disclosures
  • understand their responsibilities relating to reporting
  • demonstrate an increased awareness of what action to take if there is cause for concern
  • understand the issues around recording and sharing information
  • clarify the importance of operating within an arena of safety and adhering to relevant safeguarding policies and procedures
  • know where they can access additional support and information

Protect yourself, your service users and your organisation by gaining a good knowledge of safeguarding in action. This training is a ‘must’ for front line staff.

Please note: this training is best suited to those working directly with vulnerable adults or children, or those who wish to know more about this type of work.
