Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults



Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults is a key part of the National Minimum Care Standards which came into force on 1st April 2002.

They place a duty on owners of any type of care establishment to ensure that the people they care for are treated with dignity and respect and are free from discrimination or bullying of any form.

We can train your staff to look after residents in a way that promotes a caring environment free from abuse.
