Safeguarding Adults

What should you do if you suspect abuse?

1.  Recognise that the abuse is happening
2.  Take all reasonable steps to ensure the adult is in no immediate danger
3.  Act in accordance with the wishes of the adult at risk, wherever possible
4.  Visit Newham Council's website for further information.
