We are committed to preventing the abuse of vulnerable adults and responding promptly when abuse is suspected.
We investigate all cases when people are worried that a child may be at risk of being harmed or is not being looked after properly.
We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in need and to promote the upbringing of such children by their families.
Family courts have the power to make orders to protect children from harm caused by abuse or neglect.
Domestic abuse can have a devastating impact, often taking place behind closed doors. It is a lot more common than many people realise.
Advocacy is when someone supports you to speak up, or speaks on your behalf, to ensure you are involved in decisions made about you.
