Safeguarding Adults and Children
Who might carry out abuse?
People who need care and support need to trust and depend upon a wide range of people who offer them help in many forms, but unfortunately we know that abuse can happen anywhere and can be carried out by anyone such as:
- family, friends neighbours
- paid staff, carers, volunteers
- other service users or tenants
If you or others have concerns about the welfare of a child, young person or adult, you must report it immediately. For information, advice or assistance please contact the Child Care Assessment Team (CCAT) or the Adult Safeguarding Team.
