The protection of human rights is the main purpose of this or any safeguarding training online course. Chief among these rights is the right to equality, regardless of sex, race or other characteristic.. Where there is a violation of human rights, it is crucial that measures are in place to restore them in. This creates a framework where everyone has the right to maintain their values and beliefs while living their lives unimpeded.

“The Care Act 20141 sets out statutory responsibility for the integration of care and support between health and local authorities. NHS England and Clinical Commissioning Groups work in partnership with local and neighbouring social care services. Local Authorities have statutory responsibility for safeguarding adults. In partnership with health they have a duty to promote wellbeing within local communities.”  Excerpt taken from NHS England Safeguarding Adults pocket guide

Aims of the Course

Anyone who has a duty of care for, or comes into contact with, adults in need of care and support will benefit from this course.  This applies to both paid professionals, volunteers and those who work in domiciliary care, the NHS or at home. It sets out roles and responsibilities of carers to protect adult’s rights to live in safety and free from abuse and neglect. Those with responsibilities for vulnerable adults must take appropriate and proportional measures to protect adults in their care. Where feasible, carers should provide support to enable adults in care have control over their own lives.

The aim of this Safeguarding Adults training course is to enable you understand safeguarding principles so you can respond effectively.. You should also consider how these principles apply specifically to your role.
