“Following the initial crisis, we are now moving to a different stage in dealing with COVID-19. Safeguarding adults with care and support needs from abuse and neglect remains a priority. People may be more vulnerable to abuse and neglect as others may seek to exploit disadvantages due to age, disability, mental or physical impairment or illness.”

SCIE July 2020

“While the pandemic has shown how we can all pull together and support our communities, sadly it also means that abuse and neglect can be harder to spot.”

Richard Jones CBE, LSAB Independent Chair, Leeds Safeguarding Adult Board 2020’
