Social services Tell us about someone being abused or neglected

Who is at risk of abuse?

Children and adults with care and support needs are more likely to be at risk of abuse. Adults can be at risk because of a number of reasons. They may: 

  • be getting older
  • have a physical or learning disability, or have trouble seeing or hearing
  • not have enough support
  • have mental health problems
  • be socially isolated
  • live in inappropriate accommodation
  • misuse alcohol or drugs
  • have financial circumstances which make them higher risk.
