Adult Support & Protection Toolkit
Adult Support & Protection Toolkit

This toolkit is intended to help ensure that people in Scotland are fully informed and encouraged to act if they think someone is being harmed or is at risk.

The Adult Support & Protection Campaign reminds us that:

• We can often have an instinctual feeling that someone is being harmed or is at risk; a sense that something is not right. By acting on this, we can help a person who is at risk to overcome the situation and become safe from harm.

• It’s both vital and safe to act on concerns. One anonymous phone call to your local council is all it takes. They will check it out sensitively to make sure support is given, if needed.

• Adult harm can take many forms, from financial harm to physical harm, to neglect, to psychological harm to taking advantage of people who aren’t in a position to stand up for themselves due to age, illness, mental health, learning or physical disability.
