For victims of abuse, telling someone about it is a big step. But it’s the first step to them getting the help they need. So, knowing how to support someone when they decide to make a disclosure is a vital part of safeguarding. This course is for people who work with children or vulnerable adults, or anyone else who wants to be approachable and supportive to victims of abuse.
Taking this course will help you understand how to support people’s feelings, so they feel safe and comfortable talking about abuse. It also explores how you should respond to them to keep them safe, and how to record and report a disclosure effectively. So, by taking this course, you’ll be able to make sure that anyone who makes a disclosure to you gets the best possible support.
Talking about abuse can be really stressful. If someone comes to you for help, they need to feel safe and supported. They need to be heard, and their disclosure needs to be taken seriously.
Managing a safeguarding disclosure involves handling concerns about abuse sensitively and effectively. Anyone could be trusted with a disclosure, particularly if your job involves close contact with children or vulnerable adults. If you find yourself in this position, you have a responsibility to respond appropriately and to do what you can to prevent any further harm occurring.
Abuse is a difficult, but important subject to discuss. If conversations aren’t started, then abuse won’t be stopped. It’s also vital that safeguarding disclosures are handled properly. With that in mind, we designed a course that delivers facts in a sensitive and engaging way, using simple line drawn animation to tell a story.
