Safeguarding adults

If you know an older person who is being abused or who may be at risk of abuse, then you will find our information useful. Whether you know the individual involved through your role as a professional, carer, relative or friend, we all have an important part to play in safeguarding them from abuse. Below is a list of contacts if you suspect abuse but remember in an emergency call 999.

 

Any form of abuse is unacceptable, no matter what justification or reason may be given for it, and it is very important that we are aware of this and know that help is available.
