We take and treat Safeguarding Adults at Risk with the same importance as children. This means making sure that adults at risk are protected from abuse. An adult at risk is an individual who is aged 18+, or someone who is in need of community care services because of one of the following:

  • Mental disability
  • Physical disability
  • Learning disability
  • Age
  • Illness
  • Frailty

Or an individual who may be unable to take care of him or herself, or unable to protect him or herself against significant harm or exploitation.
