What to do if you are worried about an adult

COVID-19 Safeguarding Arrangements

During this difficult time partners across the Sheffield Adult Safeguarding Partnership are working to their contingency plans to ensure that resources are focused on the most vulnerable.  The Partnership urges everyone to follow the appropriate local and national guidance. Please remember that individual, professional and agency responsibilities to protect those at risk still continue, and we should all be acting with their best interests uppermost.   It is important that everyone remembers that safeguarding can only be effective where there are strong and open links between individual practitioners and agencies, and that good and prompt communication, and the sharing of relevant information, will help ensure that people remain safe, especially at this time. 

All of our face to face safeguarding adult training has now been cancelled until further notice.

  • If it is an emergency and you think that an adult may be in immediate danger please contact the emergency services directly by calling 999.
  • If you need to contact the Sheffield First Contact to make a safeguarding referral about an adult at risk of abuse or neglect, please telephone 0114 2734908.

It is important to use official sources of information for updates and advice.
