Telling us about harm or mistreatment if you are a provider or professional

If you are a provider (residential home, nursing home, day care, care agency, housing with care establishment) or a professional or council worker, in addition to any actions taken or telephone contact made, please download and complete the Background Information form (BIF) and email to the social work/mental health team, retaining a copy for your records.  

If you don't know who the social work/mental health team are, contact Adult Social Care Direct on 024 76 83 3003 or email ascdirect@coventry.gov.uk.

If you have reported a concern about abuse or neglect and you are dissatisfied with the decision not to investigate, please view our Escalation Policy.
