About this resource: 
Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board (NCSAB) has produced this briefing on 'mate crime' for staff to consider its relevance in relation to their team practice. People with learning disabilities, autism, mental ill health and some older people are particularly vulnerable to ‘mate crime’: abuse by those they regard as friends. While they might consider reporting abuse by a stranger, they may be reluctant to report abusive behaviour from someone whose friendship they do not want to lose.
