Adult support and protection
Perth & Kinross Council work with the NHS, Police, private and voluntary sector, to ensure adults at risk in Perth and Kinross are protected from harm.
Adults (16 years and over) may be at risk of harm due to:
- mental illness,
- old age,
- frailty or physical weakness,
- physical or learning disability,
- visual or hearing impairment.
Harm may be physical, emotional, sexual, financial or caused by neglect.
You may see and hear things that make you worry about an adult's welfare and safety.
To report any concerns contact 0345 301 11 20 which is available 24 hours a day, or talk to a social worker, home care worker, nurse, doctor or police officer.
