Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults

Under the UK law, all Health and Social Care professionals working with vulnerable adults are required to pass a training course for the Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults (SOVA). This course aims to provide Health and Social Care workers with some of the key knowledge and skills necessary to recognise and respond to signs of abuse. This includes being able to identify and report concerns about the abuse and neglect of vulnerable adults and to understand the worker’s role in the investigation process.
