Keeping adults safe

Abuse occurs when a vulnerable adult is mistreated, neglected or harmed by another person. The abuse can be an accidental or deliberate act and it can take many forms.

'Safeguarding' is the process we use to help protect someone's right to live free from harm, abuse, neglect or exploitation. We will investigate suspected abuse of a vulnerable person and take action to keep that person safe.

If you suspect abuse contact:
