If you are worried about an adult at risk of harm please contact your local authority Social Services department.   

If there is a danger to life, please do not delay, phone 999 for the emergency services.

Please note I do not take safeguarding referrals, nor can I respond to any emails seeking advice in respect of safeguarding matters of a confidential nature.  This is in line with the Data Protection Act 2018 and my advice would always be to contact your local authority or the emergency services.
