Online Training- Safeguarding Adults (18+)

Our Safeguarding courses have been created because, first and foremost, each and every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy, happy and treated well, regardless of race, age, gender or location. When these rights are abused in some way it’s wrong, and it is therefore vital that guidelines, policies and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.

Course Description

CPD Approved

This course is aimed at anyone who has a duty of care for, or comes into contact with, adults in need of care and support, either as a paid professional or a volunteer. This includes, but isn’t limited to, those that work in domiciliary care, the NHS, community centres, prisons or with a family member at home, and sets out the roles and responsibilities everyone must undertake to protect an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. You and the organisation you work for must take appropriate and proportional measures necessary for the protection of adults in your care, while still ensuring they are supported and empowered to have control over how they want to live their lives and this course can bring you one step closer to being able to do this.
This means that whatever the circumstance, you and the organisation you work for must take appropriate and proportional measures necessary for the protection of adults in your care, while still ensuring they are supported and empowered to have control over how they want to live their lives.


During this course you will hear many facts, figures and details surrounding the risk to adults in need of care and support, the types of abuse suffered and key safeguarding legislation put in place to minimise the abuse of adults with care and support needs. By the end of this course, you will have learned a better understanding of safeguarding principles and be able to apply them to your role.


This includes being able to define the key terminology in relation to safeguarding; identify the principle laws that relate to safeguarding and why they have been put in place to minimise abuse; recognise and respond to the ten types of abuse suffered by vulnerable adults; identify and report concerns of abuse or neglect; describe your role, responsibilities and boundaries; ensure people are supported and encouraged to make their own decisions and give informed consent, and finally manage the environment to minimise the risk of abuse.

Online Training By Neil Lee Training, offered by VAL

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Voluntary Action Leeds has suspended its face to face training offer until further notice. 

However we will be providing a limited number of training sessions on-line in partnership with Neil Lee Training (a regular trainer at VAL).

The courses will give you an opportunity to keep your skills up to date and relevant in an ever changing environment.  The courses are tutor led, one-to-one interactive on-line courses which you can do in your own time, at your own pace and at your own place.  Courses are fun to take part in and really easy to access. 

All courses are delivered by expert trainers with years of experience in the field. Learners will be asked questions at the end of each unit, which they will need to answer successfully in order to complete the course (but don’t worry if you get it wrong as you can try again), after which they will receive a certificate of achievement  approved by the relevant awarding bodies including CPD and Neil Lee Training Centre of Excellence.
