Understand the role of the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA), the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB), DBS disclosures and what constitutes ‘Regulated Activities’. Learn about the intentions of ‘No Secrets’ and the guidance issued under the Care Act 2014, and how not reporting results in an act of omission, which is considered neglect and abuse.

We explore the opportunities for mis-use of power, and the impacts upon the vulnerable adult. How to take immediate steps for protection including reporting, and how an inter-agency approach will support the process. We learn how to take a person-centred approach, focusing on communication factors where learning disabilities are present.
