SCIE - Safeguarding Adults

What is this?

Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE) is a Government-funded organisation and charity.  The aim of SCIE is to improve learning and development in the social care sector through training and resources.  There is a lot of useful information on the main website, including videos and free online training. There also some paid for training courses. 

We think their Safeguarding Adults page offers very useful information on understanding what safeguarding is, who is at higher risks, types of abuse and how to prevent neglect and abuse.  There is also further learning and training available from this page.

How long does it take?

There are a number of different pages to read and videos to watch so you can look at your leisure.


The website information is free. You could go on to do the Safeguarding Adults Course which costs £29 + VAT and takes two hours.
