Protecting vulnerable adults and children
Everyone has a part to play in keeping vulnerable adults and children safe from abuse and neglect.
Improving the way people work together to safeguard, promote and improve the welfare of vulnerable adults and children is crucial.
The Council's Community Safety Partnership has been working closely with the Communications team to develop a promotional campaign to raise awareness of abuse, as well as encouraging people to report any concerns they may have about an individual.
'See something, Say something', launched this month and will form part of a 12 month campaign programme targeting vulnerable adults and children.
The campaign has been split into two elements; safeguarding and vulnerability. Details of each are provided below.
If you suspect adult abuse, call 0345 604 2719. If you suspect child abuse, call 0800 131 3126. These numbers are not monitored 24/7. Concerns of immediate harm must be reported to Staffordshire Police on 999 or 101.
Whether you are a member of the public, professional or have parental responsibility, you can also make a referral online by visiting www.staffordshire.gov.uk/reportconcern
