Whatever you tell us will be treated with sensitivity, but we may have to tell other people if we need their help to protect you or the person being abused.
If you feel nervous about talking to social services, talk to someone else you feel comfortable with and ask them to pass on the information. This could be someone who works in the health service such as a doctor or nurse, or someone else in authority. You could also tell a friend or relative you trust.
Wherever you live, whether it's a care home or your own home or whichever place you have visited and if you've experienced or witnessed abuse, you can ring social services.
