ONSIDE Appropriate Adult Service supports vulnerable adults when they have been detained by the police for interview. People with mental ill health and/or learning disabilities may be particularly vulnerable to the distress and pressures caused by the experience of arrest and police detention. ONSIDE offers the support of an ‘appropriate adult’ to people who find themselves in such situations.

An Appropriate Adult is a responsible individual who is independent of the police, their role is to:

  • Look after the detained person’s welfare
  • Explain police procedures
  • Provide information about their rights and ensure that these are protected
  • Facilitate communication with the police

The Appropriate Adult Service operates in police stations within Worcestershire seven days-a-week between the hours of 8.00am and 11.00pm.
