What is Safeguarding?
You are embarking on a programme to improve your skills or to find sustainable employment. The skills programme could be in the form of an NVQ, Apprenticeship, or a 2-3 week Sector Specific training course.

Abuse can happen anywhere: at home, in a residential or nursing home,
