Safeguarding is everybody’s business.
If you are concerned about an adult with care and support needs, who is experiencing, or at risk of, abuse or neglect, the best way to report your concerns is to make a safeguarding referral.
- If you have a safeguarding concern about a vulnerable adult in Brighton then please contact the safeguarding hub at Brighton and Hove City Council’s Health and Adult Social Care at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Safeguarding concerns can also be reported online at https://new.brighton-hove.gov.uk/adultsafeguarding.
- If you have concerns that someone may have care and support needs then please contact Access Point at brighton-hove.gov.uk/adult-social-care or by calling 01273 295555, or emailing AccessPoint@brighton-hove.gov.uk.
- However, if it is an emergency, stay safe and call 999.
- If you think a crime has taken place, but it is not an emergency, please call Sussex Police on 101.
If you suspect or believe a child is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm, including any form of mistreatment or abuse, or if you are concerned about your own behaviour and need advice or support – please contact the Front Door for Families (previously the MASH) by calling (01273) 290400 or emailing FrontDoorForFamilies@brighton-hove.gov.uk
