Adult safeguarding

Safeguarding adults means protecting the most vulnerable from abuse and neglect.

If you see something or are told something that doesn't seem right you need to report it. Information about how you can report something is on our report adult abuse or neglect page or you can call 01752 668000.


You can help friends and family by making them aware of any scams during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes overpriced fake goods to protect you against coronavirus, shopping or medication collection services and home decontamination services.
