Signs of harm and abuse


This webpage provides detail into the different types and categories of abuse. You will also find information about the possible signs of abuse and neglect.

Exhibiting any of these signs, symptoms and behaviours does not always mean there are safeguarding concerns. We would ask that concerns are checked out and passed onto a Safeguarding Lead as appropriate. 

The information on this page was taken from the Safeguarding Network and the NHS website.
