Protection of vulnerable adults
Information about who is a vulnerable adult, what we mean by adult abuse and protection and what can be done about it.
All adults have the right to be safe, happy and healthy and deserve protection from abuse, for more information please read our Child and vulnerable adult protection policy.
Advice can be given to those involved, whether parents, relations, concerned members of the public and professionals about what action should be taken to protect vulnerable adults. Please refer to Devon County Council for further information about getting help for adult protection.
