At MHA, we’re dedicated to ensuring safeguarding is part of our core within the organisation.

We recognise that safeguarding adults at risk is a shared responsibility, and work alongside other organisations and professional bodies to protect the human rights of those we care for and support, treating them with dignity and respect, and safeguarding them against any form of abuse.

We take reasonable steps to promote safe practice and protect adults at risk from harm or abuse.

Safeguarding adults

'Safeguarding adults' means helping vulnerable adults to live free from abuse and neglect. Adults at risk are people who are vulnerable because of their mental health, physical disability, age or illness and have care and support needs. They may find it difficult to protect themselves from abuse because of their care and support needs.

We’re committed to promoting the welfare and wellbeing of adults at risk. All MHA colleagues have a duty to be alert to potential safeguarding concerns in adults and children. All MHA colleagues are also expected to implement MHA’s safeguarding policies and procedures, working in partnership with other agencies to help safeguard those at risk.

If you believe an adult may be at risk of abuse or neglect, please contact us or the local Adult Social Care Services.
