What does Safeguarding Adults mean?
Living a life that is free from neglect and abuse is a fundamental right of every
person. Adult Safeguarding aims to:
- Stop abuse or neglect wherever possible
- Prevent harm
- Reduce the risk of abuse or neglect to adults with needs for care and support
- Raise public awareness so that communities are empowered to report abuse and
- Achieve the outcomes that the adult wants to achieve from the situation.
