Safeguarding adults at risk of harm or abuse

East Sussex Adult Social Care has a factsheet called ‘Safeguarding adults – protecting adults from abuse’ and a leaflet called ‘What to do if you or someone you know may be being neglected or abused’. Both the factsheet and leaflet are available from Health and Social Care Connect and via www.eastsussex.gov.uk

Brighton & Hove has a leaflet called ‘What to do if you or someone you know may be being neglected or abused’. It is available from the Adult Social Care Access Point. Suspected abuse can be reported directly by filling in a safeguarding concern form at brighton-hove.gov.uk/reportadultabuse or by emailing accesspoint@brighton-hove.gov.uk
