Adult Support and Protection

Adult Support & Protection training course

Onsite Course Enquiry

The Adult Support and Protection course is designed for the regulated health and social care workforce forming part of their statutory learning and development. Here we consider what can be done to identify and protect vulnerable adults through looking at the current legislation and consideration of how this applies to the workplace.
Recognising vulnerability and knowing how to report it, in accordance with the relevant policies and procedures, is considered and discussed. Understanding the legal powers others can be granted over a vulnerable individual, and what impact this can have is also considered.
On conclusion of this course delegates should have the knowledge to outline the key activities related to safeguarding and disclosure.


After this one day course staff will:

  • Have an understanding of the purpose of the Adults With Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 and the benefits to individuals.
  • Identify the signs and symptoms which may indicate that an adult is being harmed or at risk of harm
  • Know the actions to take if harm is suspected
  • Know what is meant by ‘Power of Attorney’ and ‘Guardianship’
