We will be in touch shortly.
Our team will respond as soon as they can.
What happens next
- We will try to talk to the adult at risk as soon as possible about what they want to happen and what support they may want to help them keep safe. If the person refuses help but others may be at risk, we will take appropriate action but will always keep the person who is at risk informed.
- We will talk to the police if it is a criminal matter.
- We will also talk to those involved and ask them what has happened, including other professionals.
- Once we have gathered the relevant information, we will decide whether we need to take further action, following our safeguarding procedures.
