Refer an adult to Social Care Direct
Due to extreme pressure on the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership your needs must usually be critical or substantial to receive Social Care services. We offer many other services without the need for an assessment.
We have to give priority to the people who are at the most risk.
If you are reporting an Adult Protection concern please contact Social Care Direct on 0131 200 2324.
