SET Safeguarding Adults Guidelines post image

The Safeguarding Adult Boards in Southend, Essex and Thurrock (SET) recognise the vital role that all organisations play in safeguarding adults. The Care Act (2014) requires each local authority to set up a Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) with core membership from the Local Authority, the Police and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups. One of the key functions of the SAB is to ensure that the guidelines governing adult safeguarding are fit for purpose and can be translated into effective adult safeguarding practice. The guidelines set out clearly how concerns about adults at risk of abuse will be managed within the framework set out in the Care Act (2014) and associated statutory guidance.
