Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults (SOVA)

What makes an individual a vulnerable adult?  Delegates will learn legislation that relates to safeguarding, the different types of abuse and how to recognise the signs of abuse. Delegates will also learn about responding to and recording a disclosure and how/where to raise a concern.  Delegates will also have the opportunity to look at their own attitudes and values, what impacts on our values and how this could affect our decision making.
