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 your local Adult Social Care Team.
