Surrey Safeguarding Adults Campaign

Everyone deserves to be treated with care and respect. To help our residents stay safe, we’ve pulled together some questions that could help identify signs that someone is at risk.

  • Have you noticed a sudden change      in someone – lack of essential food, clothing or home not being kept      clean?
  • Frequent injuries, such as      bruising?
  • Appearing distressed or fearful?     
  • Being prevented from social      contact with friends or family?
  • Unexplained loss of funds/sudden      large withdrawals from bank account(s)?

While there could be several reasons for some of these things, they could also be warning signs of abuse (physical, emotional, financial) or neglect (including self neglect).

If you’re worried and want to talk to someone about it, call the free adult social care helpline on 0300 200 1005 and ask for your local safeguarding team. A member of the team will be able to give you advice, and it’s completely confidential. You could also visit your GP and talk to them about your concerns. But remember, if it’s an emergency, always dial 999.

For more information about adult abuse and how the council can help to keep you or someone you know to keep safe, go to surreycc.gov.uk/protectingadults.
