Safeguarding Adults

We support the rights of all adults to retain their independence, well-being and choice, and to be able to live their lives free from abuse, neglect and discrimination.

We are committed to a policy of zero tolerance of abuse and neglect. Mistreatment, abuse and neglect of any person are unacceptable.

Doing nothing about it is not an option.

If you have any immediate concern about an adult’s welfare, please phone, via your local council Adult Social Care Team or the police on 101.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy UK has a safeguarding policy and practice guidelines that it follows. For more information, please click on the link below:
