New Hidden Harms - domestic abuse video

Hidden harms is a short animation which explains about domestic abuse and how it might present in older people or potentially in younger people who may have care and support needs.      

The video is just under 4 mins long and looks at the different types of abuse.  

Worried about an adult

If you believe or suspect an adult at risk is being abused, it is vital you tell someone so they can get the help.

  • Call 999 in an emergency or where you believe a serious criminal act has taken place
  • Make a safeguarding referral through the online portal
  • You can speak to the Adult Social Care Contact Team on 0161 206 0604 (Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm)
  • If you need to speak to someone urgently outside of office hours call 0161 794 8888 (4.30pm to 8.00am weekdays and 24 hours over weekends and bank holidays)

If you are worried about someone who may need some help or support, but you are not concerned about abuse or neglect, there is more information available about exploring different options and you can use the portal to request support.

If you are worried about someone who may need help or support because of their mental health or wellbeing, there is more information and advice about who to contact on the new mental health and wellbeing webpages on the Partners in Salford website.
