Message from the East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board to all Independent Providers including Domiciliary Care.

We are pleased to announce that we have created two level two and one level three safeguarding training courses which are now freely available on the ASC Leader portal, the training can be accessed via ascleader.co.uk

The courses which are available for you to access are as follows:

Level one e-learning

Level one workbook

The above give a basic understanding of safeguarding and can be used by staff and volunteers. The workbook can be printed and done in your own time and then discussed with your manager.

Level 2 - Reporting Concerns

Level 2 - Mental Capacity Act

The above are for seniors/managers. For the MCA session there are three elements, the ERSAB MCA Video, the SCIE video and the presentation. Both sessions include an evaluation.

Level 3 Undertaking a safeguarding Section 42 Enquiry and level 3 for Managers along with a briefing for managers. The on-line training is offered as an interim measure and is not a permanent substitute for attending the taught sessions.  These will be run again as soon as we are able to use public venues and the restrictions have been lifted.

Please use the evaluation forms to let us have any comments you have as we continue to learn from this new approach

The situation will be reviewed on a week by week basis and further updates added to the website.

The courses on offer are informed by developments in practice, the latest legislation, national and local guidance and local policy and procedures. 

The Board is committed to delivering a high-quality, inter-agency training plan, which supports the independent sector, volunteers and professionals in their work to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults at risk of harm.
