If you think someone is in immediate danger phone the Police on 999.

COVID-19 brings uncertain times but now, more than ever, our priority is to make sure we support and protect people from harm and abuse.

Our services are open and continue to provide help and support.  If you know, or think you know someone who is at risk, or is being neglected or harmed please tell us. You can contact any of the numbers below or complete our Adult Protection Referral (APR) Form (305Kb). We are here to provide help and support.

Further information on Protecting People is available in our Working together to protect our communities booklet (PDF 2.96Mb).
