7. Report a concern about an adult

If you think someone is in immediate danger, dial emergency services on 999.

If you are worried that someone is at risk of abuse, please don’t hesitate to report your concern by calling B&NES Community Services on 01225 396000.

People who need care and support to live independently, may be at greater risk of harm or abuse. Please get in touch if you or someone you know either at home or at work is experiencing abuse of any kind. It is also essential that if you are worried that someone is neglecting themselves that you know who to tell.

We urge you to report your concerns.
