Adult Safeguarding Training

All those working with children, young people and adults at risk must have the appropriate level of training according to their role.

To ensure that the learning is applicable for each staff group; Safeguarding training should be updated and contextualised to adopt the processes and support available within each agency.  Therefore, employees and volunteers are advised to undertake the training that is provided by their partner agency, irrespective of whether they have received this from within another organisation.


Training is provided by our Workforce Development team and can be accessed via Suffolk CPD Online.

If you have any queries please see contact them.


The 'Adult Safeguarding - An Introduction' training slides and the joint 'Children and Adult Safeguarding - An Introduction' training slides can be accessed below to support partner agency knowledge and practice.
