SCIE: Safeguarding adults training webinar series

The Department of Health and Social Care has asked SCIE to develop a series of webinars to support you and your team to keep vulnerable adults safe in a variety of settings.

Each week the webinars will explore specific aspects of the safeguarding process. Attend one-off sessions to refresh your learning in a particular area or sign up to all six for a complete overview and introduction to safeguarding adults.

Maximising the benefits of remote learning, each webinar will provide:

  • a presentation from a safeguarding expert
