North Yorkshire Safeguarding Adults Board have produced three easy-read guides about abuse.
Everyone should have the information they need to be safe and feel safe. It is also a legal requirement under the Accessible Information Standard that people with a disability have information they can understand.
The Safeguarding Adults Board collaborated with the North Yorkshire Learning Disability Partnership Board and Inclusion North. They’ve produced three easy-read books about ‘Keeping Safe’:
- What is Abuse – About different types of abuse that can happen.
- Speaking up about Abuse – About telling someone about abuse that is happening.
- Reporting Abuse – About making a report to the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Adults Board.
These books are free to download and print. Though they refer to the work of the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Adults Board, they’re a useful resource no matter where you live.
