Safeguarding - What is it?

 

Safeguarding is about preventing the abuse or neglect of adults at risk and protecting those who have been subject to abuse or neglect.

 

Who is an adult at risk.. Am I an adult at risk?

 

An adult at risk is someone who needs support with their physical or emotional wellbeing, who as a result may be considered vulnerable. They may need assistance with every day living tasks. Some examples of this could be requiring assistance with eating, dressing, managing money or going out of the house.

 

Abuse - Would I see it?

 

Abuse can take many forms such as;

  • Physical Hitting, kicking or using undue restraint
  • Psychological Threats of harm or humiliation, controlling relationships and isolation
  • Sexual Unwanted sexual activity, including touching
  • Financial Theft, fraud or applying pressure around property or wills
  • Neglect Failure to meet the everyday needs of the adult at risk

 

What should I do?

 

If you suspect a person is in immediate risk of harm call 999 and speak to the police.
