Call 0300 300 1199 if you think someone is being harmed or is in danger of being harmed.
We all know that children need to be protected, but sometimes adults need to be protected too.
Older people can become frail or develop dementia or Alzheimers disease. Adults who have learning disabilities, physical disabilities or mental health problems are more vulnerable than me or you. And the effects of drink or drug abuse can also make it harder for a person to look after themselves.
The harm these adults suffer can take a number of forms, including:
- physical harm
- psychological harm
- financial harm
- sexual harm
