Safeguarding Concerns

Report the abuse of a vulnerable adult

Adults at risk are people who are 18 and over who are vulnerable. This can include: 

  • the elderly 
  • frail people 
  • those with learning or physical disabilities 
  • people with health issues 
  • people with mental health needs  

Importantly there can be people who have social care needs but may not be known to us. 

The next steps 

  • the safeguarding adults team will receive the referral 
  • they will see if it meets the threshold for safeguarding adults 
  • if it does they will investigate further 
  • you may hear nothing, don’t be alarmed it does not mean that nothing is being done
