It is recognised that adults who are vulnerable in society are at a must greater risk of being abused and/or neglected, even in settings that are set up to care and support them.
Everyone working in care or in the community has a safeguarding responsibility. This is especially true for those working with vulnerable adults who may have limited means for looking after themselves.
SOVA Training is a critical learning course which, teaches the important Safeguarding Vulnerable adults and equip individuals with the knowledge to identify and report concerns, helping to protect vulnerable adults from harm.
This SOVA course has been created to develop peoples understanding of vulnerability and capacity, to create an awareness of what constitutes abuse and, be able to identify indicators of abuse.
The course aims to teach the learners the competence required to be able to report and record any concerns learners may have with confidence and help to protect vulnerable adults from further harm.
