Safeguarding adults

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding means to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.

It is about protecting people’s health and wellbeing, and their right to safety, respect and dignity. 

The North Tyneside Safeguarding Adults Board is a partnership between public services in the borough, working together to stop the abuse and neglect of adults with care and support needs.

Their website provides information, resources and policies about preventing abuse or neglect.
