We are testing a new site
We are redesigning and improving the Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council website, this is why these new pages are different.
We believe that every adult has the right to be treated with dignity, have their choices respected and live a life free from fear. Safeguarding means protecting an adult's right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. Adults with care and support needs can be particularly vulnerable. This includes people who need support due to a disability, age, physical illness and mental health problems.
