Tell us about an adult at risk of harm

If you suspect someone you know is at risk, you must tell someone.

If they’re in immediate physical danger, call 999.

If not, call us on 020 8303 7777 (Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm) and ask for ‘screeners’ or email

We’ll ask you to give us as much detail as possible and decide what to do – usually within two days.

We’ll try to update you on what happens next, but we can’t always share personal information with you. Just know that we’ll always put the best interests of the vulnerable person first.
