If you have concerns that a person with dementia or any other vulnerable adult may be being exploited, abused or neglected contact the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).  

If you suspect a person is at immediate risk of harm call 999 and speak to the Police.

All calls concerning worries about abuse and neglect of adults or children will be treated seriously.

  • Don’t ignore the abuse or neglect. 
  • Don’t keep it secret or put off reporting it. 
  • You should take action even if you are not 100% sure that abuse is taking place.

To report a non-urgent case of abuse or neglect, to make a safeguarding referral, or for advice or guidance contact Oldham Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).


Calls us 9:00am - 5:00pm: 0161 770 7777.

Call us out of hours (Adult Social Care): 0161 770 6936

A triage officer (who is a qualified social worker) will take the information, discuss the case of the person who has been referred with colleagues and decide what course of action needs to be taken to make that person safe.
