Safeguarding – Speak Up

 

Safeguarding means protecting the rights of an adult or child to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.

As a responsible landlord, the safety of our customers is our priority. We want to make sure that you know how to get help and advice if you’re worried about a possible safeguarding problem in your neighbourhood.

What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding means protecting the rights of an adult or child to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. Abuse and neglect can take a lot of different forms.

  • Domestic abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Discriminatory abuse
  • Neglect
  • Human trafficking
  • Modern slavery

Where can abuse and neglect take place?

Abuse and neglect can occur anywhere: in the home or a public place, while the person is in hospital, a care home or attending a day centre.

Are you worried about a friend or neighbour?

It is often difficult to identify abuse or neglect but if you are in any doubt, always Speak Up.

It’s easy to talk through a potential safeguarding concern. Just contact the local Safeguarding Board and they will take it from there.
