Safeguarding Adult Reviews

The page provides information about process and findings of our published Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs).

The Care Act 2014 places a statutory duty on Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs) to undertake SARs where section 44 criteria is met. The purpose of SAR processes it not to apportion blame but to promote effective learning and improvements in how agencies work together to safeguard adults at risk. SABs look to review a case to identify what is helping and what is hindering safeguarding work, in order to remove barriers, promote good practice and protect adults from harm.
