Sheltered Housing

For each of the financial years 14/15, 15/16, 16/17 and 17/18 to November 1, what was the total number of safeguarding alerts your council received concerning people who are residents of sheltered housing or other supported living schemes?
For each of the financial years please include the age of the alleged victim within 10-year time-frames so as to preserve anonymity ie 0-9, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49 ,50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89, 90-99, 100-109.
*Please state the nature of the alleged abuse. Was it:
Physical abuse
Domestic violence or abuse
Sexual abuse
Psychological or emotional abuse
Financial or material abuse
Modern slavery
Discriminatory abuse
Organisational or institutional abuse
Neglect or acts of omission
Other please state

*Was the alert substantiated or unsubstantiated?
*If substantiated, please state the action taken.
*Were police called?
*Was a prosecution brought?
For clarity I don’t want data for residents of care homes. I am specifically looking for data on people who live in sheltered housing, supported living and any other similar schemes which assist people to live independently.
Your response should include all referrals you’ve received, including all council-run services and those provided by the independent/private sector.
