Overview

This Masters degree programme in Safeguarding Adults: Law Policy Practice at Keele University provides an exciting opportunity to study adult safeguarding through the lens of law, ethics, policy, and practice within a multi-agency framework that can include health, social care, education, police, probation and other professionals.

Applying a variety of perspectives, you will interrogate case law, statutes, and law reform processes, academic research, policy documents, work practices, and professional guidance, in order to develop and enhance your critical and practical awareness of adult safeguarding.

Career:

The launch of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 and the Care Act 2014 highlighted the increasing importance of the role of adult safeguarding within our society, and the need to protect individuals from harm, abuse and exploitation.
