♦  Organisations who make up the Adult Protection Committee and what we do. Professionals can also find paperwork and reports.

If you know or suspect that an Adult is being harmed then you need to report your concerns. Don't assume that someone else has already reported it. The person being harmed or neglected may not be able to report it themselves. Remember, the person who did this may be doing it to others too.
