Adult Support and Protection Multi Agency Awareness

Course overview

This half day course aims to help staff to become aware of signs that adults may be being harmed and to know how to respond. 

It is being run for multi agency groups of staff to support participants to work together across services in order to effectively support and protect adults.

This course is aimed at staff that have not previously completed adult protection training. If you consider that you may be asked to act as a Second Worker during an ASP investigation then you should apply for the Second Worker training.

You should only apply for either the Multi Agency Awareness training or the Second Worker training and not both.
