All adults aged 18 years and over should be able to live free from fear and harm and have their rights and choices respected.

Some adults are less able to protect themselves than others, and some have difficulty making their wishes and feelings known. This may make them vulnerable to abuse.

Safeguarding adults refers to the protection of an “adult at risk” from abuse or neglect.

An “adult at risk” is an adult who 

  • is experiencing or is at risk of abuse or neglect,
  • has needs for care and support (whether or not the authority is meeting any of
    those needs), and
  • as a result of those needs is unable to protect himself or herself against the abuse
    or neglect or the risk of it.

Use the menu on the left of this page to find out more on the different types of abuse and how to report any concerns you may have.

 

Everybody has the right to be safe no matter who they are or what their circumstances.

 

Safeguarding is Everyone's Business
