Disability and Safeguarding

Wellbeing in Disability

We are passionate about ensuring all those who live and work in the borough have equal life chances. Sometimes however we know that additional support is required.

Organisations such as the Surrey Hubs offer help, support and advice on disability and hearing loss/deafness respectively.

Remaining independent at home

There are a number of services that can help you stay independent at home. These include:

Representing your needs

The Disability Empowerment Network in Surrey (DENS) is made up of four groups of local disabled people, and their carers, who meet quarterly to discuss issues that affect them. 

The groups aim to engage and empower the local disabled community and to champion their interests.

Staying safe

Ensuring that you and those you care for are safe is an important part of your wellbeing. Waverley is one of the safest areas in the country in which to live, work and play. Despite this, we are determined not only to keep it this way, but also to ensure our most vulnerable residents are safeguarded at all times.

Our Safer Waverley Partnership monitors crime and disorder in Waverley and is committed to people “Feeling Safe and Being Safe in Waverley”.

As a first point of call if residents wish to report a crime they can contact 999 in an emergency or Surrey Police on 101. Some forms of abuse can be tied up with other issues that can lead to them not being reported. In domestic abuse cases there can be a fear that victims will lose their home if they end the relationship. To provide additional support around this issue those concerned about domestic violence can contact our Housing Service on 01483 52 3020.
