We need to protect vulnerable adults from abuse so they can live free from fear and violence, and be protected from exploitation and harm.

Children also need to be able to grow up safely, be offered life chances and be protected from all kinds of maltreatment.

Villages Housing regards safeguarding as a vitally important issue. We’re committed to providing customers with protection from harm and exploitation. We will take action to prevent bullying, harassment, discrimination, neglect and any other issue that affects vulnerable adults and children.

If you know of someone who needs Safeguarding, please speak to a Villages Housing member of staff immediately. We take all reports very seriously and in confidence. Call 0300 123 5522.

Please call the Police on 999 if you think someone is at immediate risk.
