Keeping yourself and the person you care for safe

Keeping the person you care for safe

We all have an important role in keeping adults with care and support needs safe from any potential abuse and neglect.

People may be at risk of physical abuse, sexual abuse, have money taken from them or money used in ways they don't agree with.

They might:

  • not be treated with care
  • be bullied
  • be humiliated
  • be neglected
  • be denied contact with others

If you are worried or concerned about someone, please don't keep it to yourself - report your concerns.

Report your concerns to South Tyneside Council Let's Talk Team on 0191 424 6000.
