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.

Stockport Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB)

The role of the Stockport Safeguarding Adults Board is to make sure that its partner groups, and local safeguarding arrangements, act to help and protect adults at risk.

The Stockport Safeguarding Adults Board also oversees and leads adult safeguarding in the Stockport area.
