Everyone has the right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. If you are concerned about the welfare of a vulnerable adult you should report the abuse.
- If you feel that you are being abused or know a person you believe is at risk
- If you are worried that you might harm a vulnerable adult you are caring for. Looking after a vulnerable adult can be difficult, carers can often feel isolated and stressed
- If you work with vulnerable adults and suspect abuse but are worried about what will happen if you report abuse. The person concerned may not be able to report the abuse themselves and may rely on you to voice the concern
Don't suffer in silence, there is always someone to turn to for support and advice.
