Help for Adults
The Argyll and Bute Adult Protection Committee is here to protect and support adults in our communities, who may be at "risk of harm".
If you are worried about an adult there are some key questions to think about:
- Is the person over 16 years of age?
- Is the person unable to safe guard their own possessions or own needs?
- Are they at risk of harm?
- Are they affected by ill health, disability,mental disorder, illness or infirmity?
If the answer is yes to all of these questions, then please contact us to talk to a member of staff.
If you are on a low income and are experiencing financial problems or suffering from financial hardship, Argyll and Bute Council can help in a number of ways.
The learning disability service includes health and social work staff who work together to support people in our communities with learning disabilities with their everyday lives. They can help access support, health and care services, help you to find work, and offer education and training.
The Criminal Justice Service works with people who have been accused or convicted of crimes, the courts, the police, social work and the community in areas such as providing reports for court cases, community based sentences, working with people before and after their release from prison, and generally working with a number of agencies to make our communities a safer place to live.
