Adult protection campaign image

If you think an adult you know is being harmed, we can help. You can tell us, in confidence, and we can take action to protect the person you’re worried about.

If you’re an adult and you’re being harmed, we can help keep you safe.

If you’re worried about an adult being harmed, please tell us.

All adults deserve to feel safe, make their own choices and be treated with dignity and respect. If you or someone you know is not being treated this way, they may be an adult at risk of harm.

Making sure that all adults, particularly people who are ill, frail or have a disability, is everyone’s business.

The best way to make sure the person you’re worried about gets the help they need quickly is to phone us on:

Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm:
01324 506400
All other times:
01786 470500
