Safeguarding adults – ‘If you see something, say something’ is the message to volunteers from Norfolk Adult Safeguarding Board.

Norfolk Safeguarding Adult Board is asking anyone and everyone who is presently volunteering to help vulnerable residents in their community to watch out for signs of abuse, neglect or exploitation.

Other countries in ‘lockdown’ have seen increases in domestic abuse, self-neglect, alcohol and drug use, and scams.  Volunteers have a key role in safeguarding - watching for something that doesn’t feel appropriate or that crosses acceptable behavioural boundaries.  It’s also two-way. If someone is abusive to a volunteer or fellow volunteer, it should be reported to their supervisor without delay. 

See the attached leaflet for full information and advice.  It's downloadable for printing and sharing.
