Barking and Dagenham Safeguarding Adults Board

The duties of the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB), is to protect adults at risk and raise awareness of safeguarding adults, throughout the borough.

The Care Act 2014 has for the first time given a formal statutory base for Safeguarding Adults Boards. This will enable SAB’s to deliver a more robust challenge to partner agencies and ensure a greater consistency in safeguarding in our borough.

The board does this by

  • ensuring that local safeguarding arrangements are in place as defined by the Care Act 2014
  • embedding good safeguarding practices, that puts people at the centre of its duties
  • working in partnership with other agencies to prevent abuse and neglect where possible
  • ensuring that services and individuals respond quickly and responsibly when abuse or neglect has occurred
  • continually improving safeguarding practices and enhancing the quality of life of adults in the local area
  • publishing an annual report
  • publishing a strategic plan

More information on Safeguarding adults is available on our site.

Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs)

The Barking and Dagenham Safeguarding Adults Board will undertake a Safeguarding Adults Review when the circumstances set out in the Care Act guidance are met. The purpose of a review is to promote effective learning and make improvements to prevent future deaths or serious harm occurring again. This may be where a case can provide useful insights into the way organisations are working together to prevent and reduce abuse and neglect of adults.
