Training for multi-agency staff

Training to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults

The Southwark Safeguarding Children Partnership and the Southwark Safeguarding Adults Board provide training aimed at all staff, volunteers and community leaders who work directly with children, parents and carers, and vulnerable adults.

Our multi-agency approach to training promotes universally shared knowledge, learning and best practice, and maintains a collaborative and well informed borough-wide workforce.
