Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and adults at risk from abuse, harm or neglect. The Dudley Borough Safeguarding website will provide you with all the information you need about Safeguarding.
If you are worried or concerned about a child, young person or adult, who you think is being abused or neglected – REPORT IT. Don’t bottle it up, tell someone you trust or call the following offices during office hours (9am-5pm).
Brierley Hill Area Office: 01384 813000
Dudley, Sedgley and Coseley Area Office: 01384 813200

Out of office hours contact the Emergency Duty Team on 0300 555 8574 or in an emergency call 999.
If you are a member of the public you can, if you wish, call and speak to an advisor instead. The Access to Adult Social Care Team is available on 0300 555 0055 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours an Emergency Duty Team is available on 0300 555 8574.
