Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults

Ref: C3742044

Do you work with or around "vulnerable adults"? Would you recognise the signs if a person you knew was being abused. If you suspected abuse, what would your responsibility towards the "adult at risk" be? What would be your role in preventing or minimising abuse?
