A campaign has launched across Wales to encourage people to contact social services if they are worried that a family member, friend or neighbour is at risk of abuse, neglect and harm.
Social Services in Wales has seen a reduction in referrals to its services since lockdown. Abuse, neglect and harm hasn’t stopped but opportunities to spot the signs have reduced as access to childcare settings, schools, and social situations has been limited.
It is now more important than ever that we look out for each other and encourage people to contact their local Social Services.

Fôn Roberts, Director of Social Services, Isle of Anglesey County Council said:
"Social services continue to be open and ready to help if people are concerned that a family member, friend or neighbour needs support.
“I would encourage anyone who is worried to make the call to Social Services. It can be a difficult decision but one which could help to save someone from suffering abuse, neglect or harm.
“During this difficult time it’s down to all of us to look out for each other – together we can keep people safe.”
