What is abuse?
Abuse occurs when a vulnerable adult or child is mistreated, neglected or harmed by another person.
The abuse can be accidental or deliberate and can take many forms.
Safeguarding is the process which protects a person’s right to live free from harm, abuse, neglect or exploitation.
If you suspect abuse, all you need to do is share your concerns with us - your call could make a difference.
