Adult support and protection is "everyone's business". We all have a part to play in supporting the care and protection of adults who may be at risk of harm and are unable to keep themselves safe.
If you, or someone you know, is at risk of harm don't ignore it.

The involvement of others
Although the council has the ultimate responsibility, it’s important that they work with any other professionals involved in the adult’s care. This may include social workers, health professionals or perhaps even the police, and helps to ensure the best outcome for the adult.
