Safeguarding for the City of Manchester

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.

Manchester’s Multi-Agency Safeguarding Arrangements (MMASA)

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.

Is to ensure best safeguarding practice through a multi-agency approach. We work with our partners and the public, to act as a hub for safeguarding in Manchester.
