Safeguarding Adults

Protecting adults from abuse and neglect


Eyes and Ears campaign


Everyone can be the Eyes and Ears of an at risk person and help protect them from being abused. If you have any suspicions contact the ACAP service on 0121 303 1234 (option 1)


A separate website www.bsab.org has been created for the Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board - a group of seventeen partner agencies set up to co-ordinate and promote the safeguarding of vulnerable adults in Birmingham.

This website provides information about the abuse of vulnerable adults. It gives clear instructions on what you should do if you suspect that a vulnerable adult is being abused.


What to do if you suspect abuse

If you are worried about possible adult abuse, please contact us as soon as possible. Or, if you are phoning out of office hours, contact our Emergency Duty Team.

In an emergency contact the police on 999.

If you think there has been a crime but it is not an emergency, contact West Midlands Police as soon as possible on 0345 113 5000 or 101

For organisations or agencies that need to confirm any verbal safeguarding alerts in writing, please use the safeguarding adults Multi agency alert form. There is more information for organisations or agencies about safeguarding on the Policy and Procedures web page.
