Social services Tell us about someone being abused or neglected

What happens after you have told us

We'll ask you to give details about the situation.

If anyone is in physical danger, action will be taken to make sure they are safe.

In other cases, the action we take will depend upon the wishes of the person being abused, and the seriousness of the situation.

Trained staff will carry out a careful and sensitive enquiry about how best to deal with the situation.

We will offer advice and information so that the person being abused can make an informed choice about any practical help they need or any action they wish to take.

If the person is unable to make an informed choice, care will be taken to support and protect them.

Tell us if you are being abused or think someone else may be.
