Where does abuse take place?

Abuse can happen anywhere at any time in any of the following places

  • In your own home or someone else’s home.
  • In a carer’s home
  • At a day centre
  • In care homes
  • In hospital
  • At work
  • At college
  • In a public place

For those who do not meet the criteria as an adult at risk of harm but who still appear to be at high risk there are alternative sources of referral and support.  In such cases support may be found in local social care procedures or other local processes.
