Safeguarding Adults Board

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) meet four times a year. 

The Safeguarding Adults Board is responsible for protecting adults from abuse, reducing the risk of abuse, and supporting people to stop abuse where it happens.  There are five sub groups: the quality and improvement sub group, learning and development sub group, communications and engagement sub group, the safeguarding adult review subgroup and a missing and exploitation joint sub group.

The Care Act 2014 states that one of the duties of Safeguarding Adults Boards is to develop and publish a business plan which sets out how to achieve their objectives and how their member and partner agencies will contribute to this plan. The Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly SAB has a 3 year   strategic plan that describes the priorities the Board has set out to deliver.

The Safeguarding Adults Board is responsible for writing policies and guidance for partner organisations to follow and for carrying out a Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) when an adult at risk dies or has experienced serious neglect or abuse and there is a concern that agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult.

Members of the Safeguarding Adults Board are from a wide range of organisations, including charities, NHS, local government, and the Police. The Board also benefits from information shared by the  Police, Probation Service and the Prison Service who lead in the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements which manages the risks posed by violent and sexual offenders living in the community.

You can find out more about the work of the Board by viewing a short film and by reading the annual report 2017/18.
