How can I talk to somebody about abuse or neglect?
If this is something you may have witnessed whilst working with a client, or something you’re worried about you can speak with Fora or The National Disability Abuse and Neglect Hotline.
The National Disability Abuse and Neglect Hotline (The Hotline), is a free, independent, and confidential service for reporting abuse and neglect of people with disability.
Anyone can contact the Hotline, including family members, friends, service providers, or a person with disability. The Hotline works with callers to find appropriate ways of dealing with reports of abuse and neglect of people with disability.
To make a report, contact the Hotline on 1800 880 052 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hotline is not a crisis service. In case of life-threatening situations call 000 for attendance by Ambulance, Fire, or Police services. If you think a crime has been committed or is being committed, contact your local police.
