Every person in the UK has the right to live their life in safety, free from abuse and neglect.
Our responsibility to protect the most vulnerable in our communities is at the heart of all the work we do.
We work in partnership and collaboration with local authorities, the Police, NHS Trusts and many other organisations to safeguard children, young people and adults who are experiencing, or are at risk of, abuse and neglect.
If you believe that a child, young person or adult is at immediate risk of harm, call 999 to report your concerns to the police.
NHS South East London is not a safeguarding referral service.
If you are concerned about the welfare of a child, young person or adult, please contact the relevant local authority using the links below:
