The aims of Stop Adult Abuse Week week are:
- To encourage people living and working in South Gloucestershire to act on any concerns they have about a vulnerable adult at risk
- To promote the message that:
- Everyone has the right to dignity and respect so that they can live their lives feeling safe and free from abuse
- If in any doubt, speak out: whether you are someone experiencing abuse, a carer, family member or friend, a member of staff or the public, you must report your concerns.
If you have ANY concerns about an adult at risk you must report it by calling Bristol City Council's Care Direct on 0117 922 2700.
If a vulnerable/at risk adult is in immediate danger dial 999 and ask for police assistance.
