Adult Protection - Safeguarding Adults


Safeguarding adults means helping adults at risk live free from abuse and neglect. This used to be called 'adult protection'.

Adults at risk are people who are vulnerable because of their mental health, physical disability, age or illness. They may find it difficult to protect themselves from abuse.

You can find our policy on safeguarding adults, and all our other policies, on our policies page.

Everybody can help adults at risk to live free from harm.

Further details on Safeguarding Adults are available on the Islington Council website.
