SCIE has developed a series of webinar recordings for people working in health and social care to support good practice in safeguarding.
Staff, in a range of settings, need to understand what safeguarding is about and how to respond if they have a concern. These webinars will help you develop this understanding.
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, and making sure that the adult’s wellbeing is promoted.
This course is similar, but separate, to SCIE’s safeguarding adults e-learning course.

About the course
Each recorded module explores specific aspects of the safeguarding process; all six combined offer a complete overview of safeguarding adults. These sessions were originally recorded live with delegates, during Summer 2020.
Maximising the benefits of remote learning, each webinar recording provides a full presentation from a SCIE safeguarding expert. Includes the opportunity to listen to each Q&A section which took place during the live versions with delegates from across the sector.
