A website has been created by York Safeguarding Adults' Board - a partnership group responsible for ensuring the safety of vulnerable adults in York - to advise the public and professionals on the types of abuse adults may be subjected to and what to do if they suspect abuse.
You can access the site here.
An information leaflet is also available outlining what to do if you suspect a vulnerable adult is being abused or if you are being abused yourself.
You can download the leaflet here.
You can download our safeguarding adults policy and procedure here.
