Our Emergency Duty Team provides help in a crisis to vulnerable adults, children in need and their families. An emergency is something that cannot safely wait until the next working day.

You can telephone us on 01443 743665

The service is available when local daytime offices have closed. They are on duty:

  • between 5pm and 8.30am on weekdays (Monday to Thursday)
  • at weekends from 5:00pm Friday to 8.30am the following Monday
  • during public holidays (24 hours)

We often work in partnership with other agencies, such as health and the police, to provide an out-of-hours service.


Help us improve - don't include personal or financial information, e.g. your National Insurance number or credit card details.
