Introduction

We have a duty to make sure anyone who receives a care and support service (whether it is funded by the local authority or not) is safe from abuse or neglect.

We can give you tips and advice about staying safe, whether that’s in your own home or when you are out and about.

Tell us if you or someone you know is at risk.

If someone is experiencing abuse or neglect, and because of their care and support needs they are unable to protect themselves, we will offer to help them.

Please read on to find out more about how to identify abuse or neglect.
