Work of Thurrock SAB

The Care Act Statutory Guidance says adult safeguarding is:

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult’s wellbeing is promoted including, where appropriate, having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action.

The Board has three core duties:

• To publish a Strategic Plan that sets out what the board has achieved and what it aims to achieve for the next year
• To publish an Annual Report detailing what the SAB has done during the year to achieve its main objective and implement its strategic plan, and include learning from any Safeguarding Adult Reviews
• Carry out Safeguarding Adult Reviews.

The Board’s priorities:

1. Thurrock SAB will seek assurance that safeguarding services are delivered in line with Making Safeguarding Personal Principles and Mental Capacity Act 2005.

2. Thurrock SAB will continue to develop approaches to raising awareness of safeguarding adults

3. Thurrock SAB will seek assurance that services are learning and improving in their safeguarding practice and risks are managed collaboratively.

4. Thurrock SAB will protect people who need help and support.

5. Thurrock SAB will improve multi-agency partnership and aligning its work with other partnerships.

6. Thurrock SAB will provide strategic leadership to enable effective safeguarding arrangements to be in place across the partnership.

For more information about the board’s objectives you can read the Strategic Plan 2023/26.

By working together, we can continuously improve the safeguarding procedures in Thurrock and ensure that all organisations meet the expectations set out in the Care Act 2014.
