This e-learning resource aims to promote the safeguarding of adults at risk. The resource explores the following questions: What is 'adult safeguarding’ and how does it affect each and every one of us?; How do I recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse?; What can I do if I suspect that someone is being harmed?; What should I do if I believe someone is being harmed but the person asks me to keep the information confidential and take no action?; What can I do to make it much less likely that a person might be harmed?; How do I ensure that adult safeguarding is managed correctly in the context of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The resource also includes two 'life stories' to illustrate key adult safeguarding issues, provides links to additional resources, and includes a quiz to help you assess your existing knowledge.
