Bournville Village Trust is supporting a new campaign to encourage Birmingham residents to report suspected cases of financial abuse.
The ‘Suspect it? Report it’ campaign has been organised by Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB), a partnership of organisations including Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Police and the NHS.
The campaign, which launched on 29 September 2014 and runs for six weeks, aims to raise awareness of financial abuse, the term used to describe causing harm to someone by taking or defrauding them of their money, goods or property.

This year, Bournville Village Trust was recognised for its work in the field of safeguarding and housing by being asked to take part in the development of new materials by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE). You can read more about this, by clicking here.
