This new course has been designed for individuals and organisations looking to update their understanding of safeguarding legislation and best practice, specifically when working with vulnerable adults in the creative, cultural and heritage sectors. You will explore what is meant by the term “vulnerable adult” in the context of your work and will develop approaches for recognising and responding to the different types of abuse associated with adults at risk.
