Safeguarding adults

Everyone has the right to live their life free from violence, fear and abuse, but not everyone can protect themselves.

If you’re an adult experiencing abuse or neglect, or if you’re concerned about an adult possibly experiencing abuse or neglect, contact us on 0300 1234 131 or email accessteam.referral@cornwall.gov.uk.

We will listen to what you have to say and will ask you questions to make sure we understand your concerns.

Are you a professional supporting adults?

If you are a professional and need to make a referral, information about how to do this can be found on the Cornwall Council website.

Where can I find out more about safeguarding adults?

For the public - Information about protecting your rights and stopping abuse is available in this easy read 'say no to neglect and abuse' leaflet.

For professionals - Cornwall Council has produced a guide for identifying someone at risk from or experiencing abuse.  This guide is mainly for health and social care workers, but anyone can use it.  On the Cornwall Council website you will also find policies and guidance to help you safeguard adults.
