Safeguarding adults

Protecting people from abuse

Protecting people from abuse for practitioners

A multi-agency approach means we work together, as practitioners, to help keep people safe from being abused.

Safeguarding Adults Multi-agency Policy has been developed by the four local safeguarding adults boards (4LSAB) covering Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to meet the requirements of No Secrets (2000), Department of Health and to support current good practice in adult safeguarding.

To report abuse telephone:

Hampshire Adult Services on 0300 555 1386 or the police on 101

In an emergency and if it is suspected someone is in immediate danger, 999 should always be called.
