Safeguarding vulnerable adults
Disability, illness or frailty means many adults have to rely on others to help them in their day-to-day living. Sadly, this can make them vulnerable and at risk of abuse, very often from people they know. If you see or know something of concern please do not ignore it. Those being abused often don’t seek help. Vulnerable adults have a right to live their life in an environment which is free from prejudice and safe from abuse. An approach of zero tolerance is taken by the council to make sure vulnerable adults are protected.
