Safeguarding Adults and Children

What to do if you think someone is being abused or if someone is abusing you

If you think someone is being abused, don’t assume that someone else is doing something about it. Make your concerns known to a person in authority that you feel comfortable speaking to, e.g. Social Services, Police, Care Inspectorate Wales, owner or manager of domiciliary or nursing care agency
