Safeguarding distant relatives

Occasionally it becomes impossible to get hold of a loved one in a distant part of the UK. Maybe becuase travel into Wales or Scotland is still not permitted, or your own mobility or transport is not good. After a day or two, it can be very worrying. Who can you call?

The Connecting Tracks Association based in Stoke have compiled these helpful lists of contact numbers for councils in Scotland and Wales:
