Safeguarding is everyone’s business and it is now more important than ever that those entering or returning to practice as well as those already in frontline roles understand the basics.

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

Each week we 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
  • a forum for sharing ideas
  • Q&A opportunities to discuss the safeguarding challenges that you are facing.

Week 4 – Safeguarding and human rights

Learn about the importance of human rights as a basis for good safeguarding practice, how this links to the Care Act, the Mental Capacity Act and advocacy to provide a balance between protecting and empowering vulnerable adults to be heard and in control of their own lives.
