Concerns about an adult

1. Overview

We believe that every adult has the right to be treated with dignity, have their choices respected and live a life free from fear.

Disability, illness or frailty means that many adults over the age of 18 have to rely on other people to help them in their day-to-day living.

Sadly, it's because they have to depend on others that they become vulnerable and at risk of abuse. It's very often from people they know such as a relative, friend, neighbour or paid carer.

Information about the different types of abuse and what to do if you have concerns can be found on the My Care, My Choice website.
