Section 42 Safeguarding Enquiries

In-house course: call for details

Course Overview

The Care Act 2014 placed adult safeguarding on a statutory footing. Local Authorities have a duty to make or cause to make an enquiry if a case meets the criteria in section 42. The Act and accompanying statutory guidance marks a shift away from process driven safeguarding to Making Safeguarding Personal.

This highly practical and interactive two-day course is designed for professionals who are required to conduct the enquiry under Section 42 of the Care Act 2014.

The course follows a ‘live’ fictional safeguarding concern which is delivered through a rolling case study throughout the two days
