Angus Child Protection Committee

All children and young people in Angus have a right to be cared for and protected. We all have a part to play to ensure that children are safe and their needs are met.

Here in Angus, we believe that "child protection is everyone's job and everyone's responsibility". Children's welfare is very important to us all and we take that very seriously.

On this site you will find information for children and young people, all of which is aimed at protecting children and young people and helping them to feel safe and secure. There is also information for parents and carers on a wide range of child protection topics.

Angus Adult Protection Committee

Protecting adults at risk of harm in Angus - Most adults with mental health problems, physical or learning disabilities or ill health manage to live their lives comfortably and securely. People live independently or with help from caring relatives, friends, neighbours, professionals or volunteers.

A small number of adults may experience harm, such as:

• physical abuse

• being bullied or threatened

• being forced or pressured into sexual activity

• having their money or possessions taken

• not receiving the care that they need.

The Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 makes sure that all agencies work together to help and protect adults at risk of harm.

Everyone has a part to play in protecting adults who are less able to protect themselves. This website will tell you what to do if you are worried about an adult at risk of harm. You will find links to more information about adult protection and to a number of organisations which provide services.
