The Trust works in partnership with four local authorities to safeguard vulnerable adults: the City of London, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, as well as Richmond's Wellbeing service. Each of these authorities works to the same Pan-London procedures.
Concerned that a vulnerable adult is suffering any kind of abuse?
If you think a vulnerable service user in East London NHS Foundation Trust is being harmed or abused in any way, you need to raise your concerns with the Local Authority where the service user is living right now. You will then be asked to give enough detail to make safe contact with the person you believe is suffering some kind of harm.
Raise a safeguarding alert
Raise your concern with the Borough where the vulnerable adult is currently living.
You can find out more about what kinds of harm or abuse vulnerable adults can suffer from, and how that person can be helped and protected on all the websites listed below.
