Adult Safeguarding

The Manchester Safeguarding Partnership brings together a number of agencies across the city to ensure that there is a joined up approach to adult safeguarding.

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about working together to support people to make decisions about the risks they face in their own lives, and protecting those who lack the capacity to make these decisions.

We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults, whether as a carer or family member, a friend or neighbour, an employer, or as a paid or volunteer worker.

We believe:

‘Safeguarding is everyone’s business’

Worried about an adult?

In an emergency call 999 or call Manchester Contact Centre on 0161 234 5001 to report a concern
