Protecting vulnerable adults
There may be vulnerable adults living in your community. It is important that we look out for these individuals and offer them the protection they need.
If you are concerned about a vulnerable adult who might be at risk of being ill-treated, neglected or at risk of harm, you can contact us online or call 101 and ask to be put in touch with the Safeguarding Coordination Unit. We will provide you with the details of the one which covers your area.
Our staff and officers will look at every opportunity to safeguard and protect any vulnerable person.
If you feel any person is in immediate danger, you should call 999 immediately.
We work very closely with partner agencies, such as Adult Social Care and Health, to make sure vulnerable adults at risk in Avon and Somerset are protected.
