MVA Launch FREE Safeguarding & DBS Checking Training


MVA Have produced a new Bitesize Briefing Video on Safeguarding & DBS Checks.

Safeguarding involves keeping children and vulnerable adults safe from abuse and maltreatment, making sure they have the best outcomes, that they are provided with safe and effective care, and that they are able to grow and develop happily and healthily without the risk of abuse or neglect.

It is important to have safeguarding policies put in place if your business works with children or vulnerable adults. Every person has a right to live their lives without harm regardless of their age, their gender, ethnicity or religion; and so it is given that every vulnerable child and adult is kept safe.

To help understand this subject more, and building on its series of Bitesize briefings, MVA has recently published an information video exploring the Importance of Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults at risk of neglect or abuse.

Available on YouTube, the Bitesize also talks you through, and learn more about, the different types of abuse, what to do if you encounter a safeguarding issue, and help you understand what a DBS check is and when you should have one.

If you would like further information or support on this topic, you can contact MVA by email at info@mva.org.uk, or call on 01634 812850. You can also visit the MVA website for further guides and resources.
