We all have a duty to keep children and vulnerable adults safe from harm, abuse and neglect. If you think you, or anyone else, may be being mistreated, don’t turn a blind eye or keep it to yourself. Act now.
If you are worried about a child or an adult who you think is at risk from harm please contact your local authority Social Care Team or in an emergency call 999.
