Adult safeguarding (online for teams)

    "Learning what makes an issue a 'safeguarding issue' and also the 'new' updated list of types of abuse. Very good, easy to follow and very interactive. The breakout rooms on zoom were great for allowing group work and the ability to share ideas with others."
