Adult Support and Protection Event

Do you use health or social care services? Can you help?

Eight years ago, Scotland introduced a law to ‘support and protect’ adults who need help to stay safe. The law makes clear what should happen when an adult is neglected or mistreated. In the Falkirk area, an Adult Protection Committee meets regularly to improve support and protection services.

The Committee is setting up a reference group for people who use health or social care services to comment on what works best. The first meeting is on Wednesday 28 September 2016 at 11 am at the Carers Centre in Falkirk.

We hope you will come and help improve services to people. For more information contact Ian Kinsley on 07786 704111.
