Abuse Awareness

Course Details

This hard hitting training material intentionally seeks to challenge the views, attitudes and practices surrounding adult abuse. In plain English, the resources meet and exceed the expectations of care standards and really promote best practice to protect vulnerable adults.

These are definitive adult abuse training resources, produced to engage with people being trained, educate them and motivate them to prevent abuse and neglect in any care setting.

In particular, the video is strikingly presented, certain to gain attention and sure to make a difference. We believe it is a ‘must have' for your induction, N/SVQ, refresher, management training etc.
