View the presentations from the Adult Safeguarding September event.

Safeguarding vulnerable adults is about the care and welfare of those aged 18 or over who may be in need of extra support services due to a physical, visual, hearing or learning disability. See Downloads for categories of abuse and neglect.

View the latest safeguarding adults multi-agency referral form in Downloads. Complete the form to ensure the team in Adult Social Care have the appropriate information to act on your concern. The effectiveness of the form will be reviewed in September 2018, so any feedback would be valued and can be shared via Victoria Gray.

If you suspect the abuse may be a crime, contact Camden Police Community Safety Unit.

Prevent is part of safeguarding and is the Government’s strategy for counterterrorism (CONTEST). The aim of Prevent is to divert people who may be susceptible to radicalisation.

Any concerns about radicalisation of those under 18 years must be referred to Children's Social Care under normal child protection procedures via MASH.
