  • child protection issues
  • child care concerns
  • adult support and protection issues 
  • adult care concerns
  • vulnerable old people
  • people with disabilities
  • mental health assessments
  • home care *

*If you need to speak to someone about an existing home care service outwith office hours, that is not provided by South Lanarkshire Council, then you should contact the service provider direct. 

If you have an emergency which cannot wait until normal office hours, contact the emergency social work service on 0303 123 1008.
