This part of the website is for you if you are 18 or older, and need help to keep yourself safe.

Everyone has a right to live without abuse and neglect and to be treated fairly, with dignity and respect.

Safeguarding adults is about preventing and responding to allegations of abuse or neglect of adults with care and support needs in Wolverhampton.

The Safeguarding Adults Board aims to work with local people and our partners so that adults with care and support needs are safe and able to protect themselves from abuse and neglect.


You might need care and support to help you:

  • get out of bed, get dressed or washed

  • eat or cook meals

  • to see family or friends

  • manage health problems, including mental health difficulties

  • know when you're not safe and / or what to do when you don't feel safe


For you to get safeguarding help, the level of care or support you need doesn't matter, nor does it matter whether or not you have anyone to help you with those needs.


You might have difficulty keeping yourself safe and protecting yourself from abuse and neglect because:

  • you have a physical disability

  • you have a learning disability

  • you experience mental health problems

  • you have autism or Asperger’s Syndrome

  • you misuse alcohol or other substances

  • you have difficulty seeing or hearing
