Safeguarding Adults and the Care Act
Under the law, Councils must make sure people with care and support needs can live safely. This is called Safeguarding. Safeguarding means stopping abuse.
If a Council thinks someone is at risk from abuse they have to check whats happening if:
- and the person cant protect themselves
How do I tell someone about abuse?
If you think an adult is being abused or neglected you should report it. Do this:
- Phone the Council on: 01905 768053
- In an emergency call: 999
