Safeguarding Vulnerable People

We regularly hear about child abuse in the news, but in fact many adults, particularly the elderly are very vulnerable to abuse and can also be subjected to intolerable treatment.

Everyone should have the right to live free from fear and abuse.  Abuse comes in many forms, whether it is violence, threats, neglect, or even being 'ripped off' by unreasonable charges when you're not as sharp as you used to be.  if you feel that you, or someone you know, is being abused you should do something about it.  This section of our website provides links to information and guidance about abuse and what you can do about it.

Gloucestershire County Council Adult Protection team co-ordinate countywide procedures to protect vulnerable adults - www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/adultprotection

Action on Elder Abuse have comprehensive information and links to help you too. They have a particularly good section on the types of abuse, why it happens and what are the tell-tale signs to look out for - www.elderabuse.org.uk

Also, for more information or help to report abuse contact the Adult Help Desk on Gloucester (01452) 426868

The County Council have some useful documents available if you scroll to the bottom of the following page - Abuse Article

Remember - if you see it happening, please report it.  Abusers should not be left to get away with it.
