Havering Safe Guarding Week 2nd – 6th October 2017

This week is Havering council Safeguarding week

Everyone in Havering should be able to live their lives free from abuse and neglect.


There are 4 different type of abuse to look out for

Physical – when someone is violent, causing harm by hitting, slapping and punching

Emotional – When someone is rude, ignores you, talks over or doesn’t listen to you

Sexual – When someone forces you to take part in sexual activity without consent.

Financial – When someone steals or takes control of your money/personal property

If you or someone you know is being abused or neglected, don’t ignore it, tell someone.

If there is an immediate risk of serious harm then call the Police on 999.

If there is not an immediate risk, report it to the safeguarding Adults team on 01708 4335500 or email safeguarding adults team@havering or Child protection team on 01708 433222 or email tmash@havering.gov.uk


Whatever you do, don’t ignore, tell someone straight away
