Working closely with individuals, you are often the most likely person to be told something or notice something of concern. We help you to understand what abuse might look like and how to challenge any concerns you have.
Never assume someone else has noticed or has raised a concern - it will make an "ass" out of "u" and "me". Ass can mean fool or donkey. This course provides a refresher for people who have already done the Care Certificate.
