Creating a positive environment for children and adults at risk, and looking out for their welfare, is everyone's responsibility. And now there's a simple, highly cost-effective way you can help to make this happen...

Our Safeguarding Essentials online training course explores the problems children and adults at risk can face and the steps your staff should take if they have any concerns. But it's not all about responding to problems: the course also provides your staff with practical tips and pointers for maintaining a professional relationship with vulnerable people and creating a safe, positive environment for them.

The online safeguarding course gives us the ability to provide quality, consistent training to all our community staff across the country.
