The board is a multi-agency forum that agrees on how the different services and professional groups will co-operate to safeguard adults at risk of abuse or neglect across the borough.
To improve outcomes the board monitors safeguarding processes and ensures suitable mechanisms are in place to identify abuse or inadequate care, support vulnerable people at risk and facilitate the planning and implementation of joint preventative strategies.
The board helps and supports the individual member agencies in meeting their responsibilities by producing:
- A business plan to provide a framework for all multi-agency safeguarding activities
- Comprehensive range of publicity information
- Appropriate multi-agency training
- An annual report.
