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. To increase our understanding of abuse and neglect: useing data to create profiles by location, abuse type, perpetrator, care and support need.
2. To contribute implementing the recommendations of the Sexual Abuse/Violence JSNA.
3. To focus on perpetrator disruption.
4. To strengthen transitional safeguarding arrangements.
For more information about the board’s objectives you can read the Strategic Plan 2020/23.
