Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board Vision: We will all work together to enable people in Surrey to live a life free from fear, harm and abuse.
The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board helps and protects adults in Surrey who have care and support needs and who are experiencing, or are at risk of, abuse or neglect. The Board ensures there are effective processes in place to prevent and respond to abuse and neglect, raises awareness of the importance of safeguarding through publicity campaigns and has a multi-agency training programme in place to give staff the right skills to safeguard adults. Representatives from Surrey’s carers groups, disability groups and older people’s groups are members of the Board and ensure the voices of adults at risk, their families and carers are heard. In April 2015 the Board will become statutory under the Care Act 2014.
On 18 July 2014 the Board published the Serious Case Review Executive Summary into the care, assessments and planning received by Mr D and his family.Please see the Serious Case Review page.
