What is Adult Abuse?

Adult abuse is when an individual uses power or control over a person to cause them significant harm or distress. There are many different types of adult abuse including physical, emotional, psychological, financial and sexual abuse, as well as neglect and exploitation. Abuse can happen anywhere: at home, in a public place, at a hospital or care home, or even at work.
