Safeguarding - 'First Contact' Training

posted May 24, 2017, 8:15 AM by Rebecca Barker   [ updated May 24, 2017, 8:15 AM ]

The Care Act 2014 provides a definition and framework for Safeguarding Adults.

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult’s well being is promoted including, where appropriate, having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action. This must recognise that adults sometimes have complex interpersonal relationships and may be ambivalent, unclear or unrealistic about their personal circumstances.


To this end, LSCP has developed the following session Safeguarding – First Contact. The course has been developed in line with the following Policy and legislative documents

  • CQC Code of Practice
