  • Understanding The Care Act (2014) and Mental Capacity Act (2005).
  • An overview of adult safeguarding legislation, policies and procedures.
  • An overview of local authority roles and responsibilities, information on S42 safeguarding referrals and additional resources and support available for FSOs.
  • How to deal effectively with concerns and/or abuse.
  • How to effectively deal with, investigate and record-keep information.
  • How to make safeguarding personal and promote wellbeing.
