Reporting an Adult Safeguarding Concern:

I feel I am being abused or neglected, how can I report this?

1. Tell someone you trust immediately; this might be:

  • a family member
  • a friend
  • a visiting professional such as a nurse or care worker
  • your family doctor (GP)
  • a hospital doctor or nurse
  • a Police officer
  • a housing officer

All of these people will be able to help you. They will pass on the information you give them to someone who can help or will help you to pass this information on yourself.

They will not do anything which will make things worse for you and your views, wishes and feelings will always be considered.

2. Where an adult is:

  • Unable to look after themselves, due to the level of their care and support needs, and 
  • Is experiencing or is at risk of abuse or neglect

Contact Adult Social Care on: 01926 412080. Our adult social care teams can offer advice and support to you and, where necessary, arrange appropriate services.

3. To report a crime or raise a concern about abuse with Warwickshire Police, you can phone non-emergency number on: 101. But if it is an emergency always dial: 999
