Safeguarding Adults is the term used to describe how agencies (such as Peterborough City Council, Health Services and the Police) work together to keep adults safe from neglect or abuse.
What should you do if you think someone is being abused?
Anyone who is concerned that an adult is being subjected to harm abuse or neglect should contact us using the details below:
· In non-urgent situations it is important that the information is reported to Adult Social Care so that a care worker can play a part in planning how to respond to any specific case. This is the same as for child abuse.
· Referrals may be made during working hours through the Peterborough Direct telephone number: (01733) 747474. In emergencies outside office hours contact the Emergency Duty Team Social Worker on (01733) 234724 or the Police on 101.
