Q: roles of different agencies safeguarding and protecting individuals from abuse
A: Keeping safe and protecting vulnerable adults from harm and abuse All adults should be able to live free from fear or harm and have their rights and choices respected. To help people who may be being abused or suspect that abuse is happening, [ we have published 'Keeping Safe and Protecting Adults' which you can download from this page. It gives more information about types of abuse and what
to do if you suspect abuse. You can also visit the York Safeguarding Adults website What is adult abuse? There are many different types of abuse, see pdf on this page. It may: be physical or sexual involve taking money without permission include bullying or humiliating include not allowing contact with friends and family involve withholding food or medication Abuse can be the result of a single act or may continue over many months or years. Abuse can be accidental, or a deliberate act. An abuser may be ? a relative, a partner, someone paid to provide care and services, a volunteer, a neighbour, a friend or stranger. Abuse can happen anywhere: at home in a care home in hospital in sheltered housing in supported living centres at day centres and other day services outside in a public place How can I tell if abuse may be happening? Adult abuse is not always easy to identify as sometimes the nature of the abuse is not visible and/or often the person being abused is afraid to speak out. However, there are some more common signs of abuse, see pdf attached to this page, which if seen may suggest that abuse has occurred. Which adults are vulnerable to abuse? Some adults are less able to protect themselves than others and some have difficulty making their wishes and feelings known. This may make them vulnerable to abuse. They may also be vulnerable because they are in need of community care services due to mental health problems, physical or learning disability, age or illness. In York we are working together with the Police, local Councillors, Health and local independent and voluntary sector organisation to improve and develop further services to keep vulnerable adults safe. ]
