Safeguarding adults and children

Protecting vulnerable people in Bromley

NHS Bromley CCG works with health service providers and a range of other local organisations in the borough to make sure that vulnerable adults and children are protected.

Everyone in the UK has the fundamental right to live free from harm and abuse. We are responsible for making sure all of the services we commission are safe and effective. We make sure that safeguarding is everyone’s business by working closely with many different people and organisations in Bromley.

Find out more about our responsibility to safeguard local residents by safeguarding through our related policies at the bottom of this page.

Bromley CCG works with other partners in Bromley as part of the Bromley Safeguarding Adults Board. There is a huge commitment in Bromley to protect all residents from abuse and neglect. This involves helping residents to understand what abuse is and how we can work as a community to tackle it. To help us do this, we have produced a video which is available below:

If you have any concerns about someone’s safety, please call 020 8461 7777 during office hours and 0300 303 8671 out of office hours. For any emergency situation please call 999.

Safeguarding adults

We support adults who are at risk of abuse and neglect. They are often vulnerable because of their mental health, physical disability, age or illness and may find it difficult to protect themselves from abuse. View our Safeguarding Adults policy.

We also take an active part in the work of the Bromley Safeguarding Adults Board, which is made up of a broad range of professionals and organisations from our borough.

Safeguarding children

Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility and adults have a duty to report abuse.

Bromley CCG commissions services to safeguard and promote the welfare and wellbeing of all children in our borough. This involves working closely with our partners, especially Bromley Council. View our Safeguarding Children policy.

The Safeguarding Children and Adults policies and procedures have been updated in line with changes to legislation and are widely available. We also take an active part in the work of the Bromley Safeguarding Children Board, which is made up of a broad range of professionals and organisations from our borough.
