Safeguarding adults

What to do if you are being abused

If you are being abused, or you suspect that someone you know may be the victim of abuse, then contact Gateway to Care as soon as possible. Calderdale Council and its partner agencies take the protection of vulnerable adults very seriously, and will investigate your concerns. Gateway to Care will ensure that any information is passed onto the appropriate team within Adults, Health and Social Care.
