Welcome to the Manchester Safeguarding Partnership website

The Manchester Safeguarding Partnership is made up of organisations that work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults, children, young people and their families across the city of Manchester.

This website brings together information for the wider our Manchester community – adults, children, young people and their families; the practitioners and volunteers who work with them; and the residents and businesses who want to help us achieve our aims.

Safeguarding is everyone’s business.

During the current COVID-19 arrangements more people will be volunteering and coming across people and situations they have not seen before.

As a volunteer is important you create a safe and welcoming environment, where everyone is respected and valued, this behaviour is at the heart of safeguarding. It’s about making sure you play a part in identifying or preventing harm, harassment, bullying, abuse and neglect. It’s also about being ready to respond safely and well if there is a problem. 

  1. Safeguarding a child – a child or young person means anyone under the age of 18 – this means protecting individual children from abuse and maltreatment or preventing harm to children’s health or development
  2. Safeguarding adults at risk – is anyone over the age of 18 who is at risk of harm and is in need of support to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.

If you are concerned about a child, young person or adult, then please call Manchester Contact Centre on 0161 234 5001 or in an emergency call 999.
