Your spotlight on local services


At Healthwatch Croydon, we provide training for voluntary organisations, residents and workers on different aspects of health and social care as well as referring to other local organisations with relevant training opportunities.

Safeguarding Training from Healthwatch Croydon

Healthwatch England highly recommends that Enter & View volunteers undertake Safeguarding training. Several aspects of Adults Social Care have changed dramatically including the Safeguarding of Adults at Risk. As a result of this Healthwatch Croydon has arranged for a series of training sessions, to support staff and volunteers in recognising the signs of abuse and the reporting system to the Croydon Council.

See www.healthwatchcroydon.co.uk/events/safeguarding-training for more details and to book.
