New National Domestic Abuse Campaigns 'Rail to Refuge', #YouAreNotAlone and #NoExcuseForAbuse

Thurrock Safeguarding Adults Board

is a multi-agency partnership which makes sure that organisations work well together to protect adults from abuse and neglect. The Care Act 2014 requires every Local Authority to set up a Safeguarding Adults Board.

The board’s vision is that people are able to live a life free from harm, where the community has a culture that does not tolerate abuse, works together to prevent abuse and knows what to do when abuse happens.
