Vulnerable adults can be physically, sexually, emotionally or financially abused.
Abuse can also take the form of neglect, discrimination or self-neglect.
If you don't report it, it won't stop. You can report any concerns in confidence.
To report a safeguarding concern about an adult you can contact us from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
As a professional or a member of the general public you can also report your concerns online.
In an emergency out of normal office hours contact the Emergency Duty Team on 01254 585949 , or contact the Police on 01254 51212 or dial 999.
Details of the local safeguarding arrangements can be found on the Local safeguarding adult board website.
