If you are worried that someone is being harmed or neglected in some way, report it.  Our safeguarding services can look into it and find out what is happening.

We know from experience there are vulnerable people in the county who are being subjected to abuse but may lack the ability, knowledge or support to challenge it or do something about it.  That’s why we need people to speak up for them.  If you suspect it, think it, hear it or see it, report it to us.  Your intervention could help save someone’s life.

Remember, our Safeguarding Adults Board in Somerset has lots of useful information to support providers in recognising abuse and neglect and responding appropriately to it: Somerset Safeguarding Adults Board – Somerset Safeguarding Adults Board (safeguardingsomerset.org.uk)
