Have your say!
Are you an adult who provides unpaid care for another adult with care and support needs who lives in Salford?
The Salford Safeguarding Adults Board, or ‘SSAB’, work to promote the wellbeing, security and safety of adults with care and support needs in Salford. We are currently holding our first ever ‘Voice of the Carer’ survey and would love to hear from you!
Looking after a friend or family member with health issues, disability, addiction or other difficulties can be a positive experience, but can also put a real strain on carers. We want to understand more about how being an unpaid carer affects you, hear what you think about the support available to you as a carer and see if there are any ways you feel that the wellbeing of carers like you can be improved.
Please fill in this short survey and let us know what you think!
Every piece of feedback will be read to help us to improve the help available to carers in Salford and in our mission to keep Salford adults safe – so please let your voice be heard!
The survey is online, mobile-friendly and completely anonymous. Your experience and knowledge is so valuable and it would be great to hear from you!
Worried about an adult

- 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)
