Adult safeguarding – helping adults at risk
Safeguarding adults at risk from abuse and neglect
Where can abuse happen?
Abuse or neglect can take place anywhere. It could take place at home, at work, in hospital, in a nursing or residential care home or anywhere else in the community.
Do not stay silent
Abuse is not your fault. No one has the right to abuse you. Please speak up if you or someone you know is at risk of, or experiencing abuse. If you're not sure what's happening to someone but you are concerned and would like some advice, please contact us.
