Safeguarding children and adults at risk is everyone’s business and the housing industry has an important role to play.

The course will raise awareness of children and adults at risk, the systems to safeguard them, and the role and responsibilities of housing staff and partner agencies.

It is a mandatory requirement that all staff, volunteers and contractors are trained to know what is meant by safeguarding, how to promote the welfare of adults and children, and what to do if they have concerns that a child or adult is at risk.
