Safeguarding Adults

In light of the new Care Act 2014, you will begin to see a transition in the terminology that we use across our training materials, resources and training delivery. As a result, you will note that the phrase ‘vulnerable adults’ is being used far less. Where the term vulnerable adults is still used for instance in our DVD materials, please note that this is in the process of being updated.
