Adult support and protection

Do you know someone who is being harmed?

If you think you know someone who is being harmed, or is at risk of being harmed, you must tell someone. Remember, the person being harmed may not be able to report it.

You can contact your local social work services, health professionals or the police. They will take your concerns seriously and work to make sure everyone is safe.

Reporting your concerns

During office hours call your local social work office. Outwith office hours, use the social work emergency service number 0800 121 4114.

If someone is in immediate danger, call 999.

Adult protection procedures

This includes all the procedures to be followed for adult protection, but not the forms that are to be used. 

If you require any of the forms, please contact the adult protection coordinator.
