Person in Position of Trust Training: for those working with adults with care and support needs

Published: 04 July 2018

Do you know who is a “Person in a Position of Trust (PIPOT)” is? Do you know how to make a referral regarding concerns about a Person in a Position of Trust? If not then this training might be for you. This training is aimed at Staff within organisations who work with adults with care and support needs, who may need to make a referral to the Local Authority Safeguarding Manager.

What is the “Person in Position of Trust” Protocol?

It is a requirement of the Care Act 2014 Statutory Guidance that Safeguarding Adults Boards should establish and agree on a framework and process for any organisation to respond to allegations against anyone who works, (in either a paid or an unpaid capacity,) with adults with care and support needs. In this document, this framework and process is referred to as the “Protocol”.

This Protocol applies to all partner agencies of Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB) and organisations commissioned to provide services, so they respond appropriately to allegations against people who, whether an employee, volunteer or student, paid or unpaid, works with or cares for adults with care and support needs. These individuals who work with or volunteer with vulnerable adults are known as “People in a Position of Trust”.


To enable staff to feel confident in using the “Person in Positions of Trust” Policy.
