The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board offers free training for all agencies in adult social care. However, we still pay trainers to deliver these courses and, there is a significant amount of time involved in making this offer possible.

So that we can continue to offer these courses free of charge, we must ensure that courses reach viable numbers.

Candidates can not be swapped, if you are no longer able to attend this session at any time and have a colleague who is, please cantact the SSAB directly.
