Worried about an adult

If you believe or suspect an adult at risk is being abused, it is vital you alert the authorities. 

  • 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 Centre on 0161 631 4777 (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)

You can also email: worriedaboutanadult@salford.gov.uk

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