Q: Explain the correct actions to take if you suspect an individual is being abuse
A: it is really important to seek help. If an adult is in danger first ensure the individual is safe. Call emergency services if immediate help is needed. [ Dial 999 and ask for the appropriate emergency service. If it is not an emergency, then contact Adult and Community Services or if criminal abuse is involved, contact the police.
