Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults (Level 2)

When working closely with children or vulnerable adults in your community, it is essential to fully recognise the responsibilities you have to their welfare.

The Lubas Medical ‘Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults’ Level 2 course will enable you to fully understand your role in protecting children and vulnerable adults from abuse. Protecting children and vulnerable adults is everyone’s responsibility.

Our course instructors are vastly experienced in working within safeguarding both children and vulnerable adults. They draw on their extensive knowledge and experience to provide vital, interactive training that encourages group participation.

We cover topics that can often be difficult to discuss in a sensitive but open manner that will put your mind at ease. Anybody working closely with, or coming into contact with, children or vulnerable adults requires Level 2 Safeguarding training. All staff should be aware of your policies and procedures relating to safeguarding.
