Adult Protection Committee

We believe as a committee in Zero Tolerance of Harm. This means that we believe all agencies, services and individuals need to do something when they believe or know someone is being harmed.

Our job is to make sure that the new law is helping to support adults who might be being harmed and help make them safe.

Every two years we prepare a report for the Scottish Government, which provides information about how well we protect people in East Ayrshire. Our most recent report can be found in the further information menu.

Over the next two years we will look at how we have been supporting people and we will find out if this has made a difference.  We call this the outcome for people. We will use this information to improve what we do and help other services do the same. We will work together as part of the East Ayrshire Community Plan, we are a core member of the community safety group and we look forward to continuing to make a difference in preventing harm and protecting people.
