Keeping vulnerable people safe

Priority overview

Ensuring vulnerable children and adults are safe is one of our key priorities and responsibilities to the community.

There will always be children and adults who cannot be looked after at home by their families. Where it is clear this is the case for children, we will intervene early and find permanent or long-term placements for them through fostering or adoption where appropriate. We will also ensure that vulnerable adults are safeguarded whether they are looked after at home or somewhere else.

Examples of planned work during 2020/21

  • We will continue to help victims of mass marketing fraud
  • We will support people who have been a victim of sexual violence and domestic abuse through the specialist domestic abuse and sexual violence service
