Adult protection

We are still here to help

If you or someone you know is at risk of harm or abuse, we are still here to help.

Are you worried about someone?

We all have a right to be safe. If you are worried that you or someone you know is being harmed, suffering from neglect or being abused, you should tell someone. You can contact any of the numbers below or complete our Adult Protection Referral Form (305Kb), also known as an APR.

The person causing harm may be doing it to others. Or the person who is being harmed or neglected may not be able to report it themselves.

If you are concerned about the immediate safety of an adult phone the police. Dial 999.

Any information you give will be treated with care. Even if you don’t want to give your name, we can still make sure the person’s care and welfare are protected.

For more information on Adult Support and Protection, please read this guide to recognising and helping adults at risk of harm (1.05Mb).
