Safeguarding adults in Camden
Coronavirus - Information and links:
Camden Safeguarding Adults Partnership Board are supporting WEAAD by adding our voice to help raise awareness of the abuse suffered by the elderly.
Every year on June 15th, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is commemorated around the world. In recognition of WEAAD, we have produced this newsletter with the aim of signposting to the help and information that is available on some types of abuse. Camden SAPB would like to add its voice to send out a clear message that the abuse and neglect of our older generation will not be tolerated.
NHS England/Improvement have events planned that you can get involved in:
Everyone has the right to live a life that is free from abuse, harm and neglect.
If you are worried about an adult please call 020 7974 4000 and select option 1, or email us using the link below. If you think an adult is in immediate danger you should call the police on 999 (urgent) or dial 101 (non-urgent).
Deaf or Hard of Hearing people who use British Sign Language (BSL) can contact Camden Council using our SignVideo Web Access, an online sign language interpreting service. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a weekand will require a webcam. https://www.camden.gov.uk/accessibility#lvcz
An adult with care and support needs may be more at risk of, or already experiencing, abuse or neglect because they:
- are unable to take care of themselves or protect themselves from harm,
- depend on others for their care,
- lack the mental capacity to take a particular decision.
If you are concerned about an adult please email email@example.com
