Safeguarding Adults – Glossary of Terms

The aim of this section is to provide interpreters with information about the different types of glossaries available for Safeguarding Adults.

It includes information about the names of the providers, the title pages and the website links.

It is particularly useful to review if you have an upcoming interpreting assignment linked to this topic- this will allow you to understand and familiarise yourself with meanings of specific terminology in advance that may be used by the professional.
