Report fraud

Make a good call

Salford City Council is committed to making sure that the opportunity for fraud and corruption is reduced to the lowest possible risk. 

An important part of this is the introduction of an anti-fraud, bribery and corruption strategy and policy (see documents below). They will be used to advise and guide members of the council and staff on the council's approach to the serious issues of fraud, bribery and corruption.

The council expects all members, employees, consultants, contractors, and service users, to be fair and honest, and to provide any help, information and support necessary to deal with fraud and corruption.

To report or raise any concerns:

The council will protect the anonymity of a person reporting their concerns, although it is helpful if a name and contact details are left in order that any issues may be clarified to assist in any investigation.

If you wish to raise a concern regarding housing benefit and council tax benefit fraud, you can contact the Corporate Fraud Team on 0161 607 6982/6984, or alternatively email

Please give as much detail as you can. The matter will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
