A message from the Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board regarding Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19)

We all have a role to play in safeguarding adults at risk. This website is for Lambeth residents, health and social care staff and other professionals working in the borough. It provides information about Safeguarding Adults with the aim of helping you to understand what adult safeguarding means and what you can do to support adults who may be at risk of or experiencing abuse or neglect. 

During this pandemic, we will endeavour to include information on this website which may be helpful to you directly or if you are trying to help someone else. It is vital that we all come together to support and protect those who are most vulnerable. People need to be encouraged to offer help to elderly and other vulnerable people in their neighbourhood using the precautions that government has outlined, to reduce transmission.

If you have concerns about yourself, your neighbour or someone in your community, please see our list of resources that can support you.

Lambeth Council also has a coronavirus helpline for people aged 70 or over and people of any age with the health conditions: 020 7926 2999 (The helpline is open from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday).
