Reading - Reporting Safeguarding Concerns

If you are experiencing abuse, or are worried about another adult you believe may be experiencing abuse, contact Reading Adult Social Care:

Call 0118 937 6550

Or use this online form 

If the situation is urgent and it is out of normal working hours, call the Emergency Duty Team on 01344 351 999

If you or someone else is in danger call the Police on 999.

If you think a crime has been committed but it is not an emergency, call Thames Valley Police on 101.

We ask trained staff to carry out a careful and sensitive enquiry. What happens next will depend on the wishes of the person concerned and the seriousness of their situation. Their safety is our priority.

We will offer information and advice so the person can make an informed choice about any practical help they need or action they wish to take. If they are unable to make an informed choice, care will be taken to support them in the best way possible.
