Safeguarding from abuse and neglect
Anyone in the community can be vulnerable to abuse and neglect, whether you’re a man, woman, young or old. Learn more about the support we can offer to help.
Helping you combat abuse and neglect
We know that each and every one of our residents is an individual with different personal circumstances. Abuse and neglect can affect anyone, in a number of different ways.
Greenfields acknowledges and is committed to the important role housing providers play in safeguarding adults, young people and children, helping people to live free from abuse, harm and neglect. We have a Safeguarding policy and a short guide on safeguarding to help to protect the welfare of individuals. We are on your side, and here to help.
How to report a concern
If you have a safeguarding concern in the first instance please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on 01376 535400. If there is immediate risk to a person’s safety please call the relevant emergency services. To find out more information on safeguarding please vist The Essex Safeguarding Adults Board or Essex Safeguarding Children Board.
Your action could help someone like our housing for older people’s resident who was targeted with financial abuse.
