Are you worried about a vulnerable adult?

Posted on 23 Apr 2020


Help us protect vulnerable people in our community during the pandemic.

Illness, or disability, can make an individual reliant upon others for help and support.

In some cases, reliance can increase vulnerability to abuse and exploitation when trust is abused. People over the age of 16, who fall into this group, are sometimes referred to as adults at risk of harm. 

If you have concerns that a vulnerable adult may be at risk of harm, then please contact our Adult Support and Protection team on:

01294 310 005 (Three Towns)
01294 310 300 (Irvine & Kilwinning)
01505 684 551 (Garnock Valley)
01475 687 592 (Largs)

Lines are open Monday to Thursday 9am - 4.45pm and Friday 9am–4.30pm.  The out of hours number is: 0800 328 7758.

Or email: adultprotection@north-ayrshire.gov.uk

If the person is in immediate danger or in an emergency situation, call Police Scotland on 999. For non-emergency situations call 101.
