We have safeguarding champions - we work closely with local authorities to protect

children and vulnerable adults from any kind of abuse, and to keep them free from harm.

This is one of our top priorities.

Keeping you safe

Who could be the abuser?

• Friends

• Family

• Neighbours

• Professionals

• Strangers who groom online

Types of abuse

could include:

• Physical, emotional or sexual abuse

• Domestic abuse

• Discriminatory abuse

• Financial abuse

• Institutional abuse

• Neglect and self-neglect

• Modern slavery

Who might be at risk?

• Children

• People with disabilities

• Older people

• People with mental health problems

• People who are ill for a long time

• People who are misusing drugs or alcohol

Signs of abuse

For example these can be when a person:

• Looks dirty or is not dressed properly

• Has an injury that is difficult to explain

• Seems frightened around certain people

• Seems unusually down or withdrawn

• Finds money missing

Everybody has

the right to

feel safe.

Even if you're not sure whether these signs mean abuse,

you should still report them to us at ongo.co.uk or the adult

and child services team at your local authority.
