Adult Safeguarding

Covid-19 updates

In an update for GPs, the NCL safeguarding team has highlighted the need to be extra vigilant at a time when vulnerable adults and children may be isolated and not visible to professionals. Please continue to refer any safeguarding concerns to your local children and adult social care/domestic violence and abuse agencies, and consult your local safeguarding team for advice as required.


The Royal College of General Practitioners has issued advice on Covid-19 and safeguarding.


Women's Aid has published a Covid-19 resources page of joint-sector resources for survivors of domestic violence and the community, available in 15 different languages, and British Sign Language.


See information on categories of abuse and neglect.

See information on mental capacity.


NHS Safeguarding app

The NHS Safeguarding app has been developed to act as a comprehensive resource for healthcare professionals, carers and citizens.

It provides 24-hour, mobile access on up to date legislation and guidance across the safeguarding life course.

The app also provides information on how to report a safeguarding concern and even has a directory of safeguarding contacts for every local authority in England, searchable by region.

RISE service for perpetrators of domestic abuse and young perpetrators

Barnet Council has commissioned Rise, which is an offshoot of London Probation, to provide services for perpetrators of domestic abuse. The organisation provides intensive group work and has a specialist programme for young people who are violent to parents. 

These programmes are more suitable than anger management for men who have been violent or controlling towards partners.  

Rise accepts GP referrals or self-referrals.
