Keeping you and your family safe
It is our role to promote the wellbeing of all adults. Some adults are sometimes less able to protect themselves from harm and abuse.
If you know someone aged 18 and over who is being hurt or is at risk of harm then you must tell someone.
Abuse must be stopped.
It is really important to protect an adult who is being hurt, shouted at, or who is scared of someone who should be caring for them.
