This conference focuses on Adult Safeguarding Investigation and Undertaking and Learning from Safeguarding Adults Reviews.

“The statutory guidance is clear about the purpose of Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs). Reviews should be designed to determine what agencies and individuals might have done differently that could have prevented harm or death. Their completion and dissemination are so that lessons can be learned and applied to future cases to prevent similar harm occurring again. To what degree are SARs achieving this purpose?”

Analysis of Safeguarding Adult Reviews November 2020

“The overarching objective of a Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) is to assure itself that local safeguarding arrangements and partners are effective in helping and protecting adults at risk of abuse and neglect . SABs are under an absolute duty to conduct a SAR where an adult with care and support needs has died as a result of abuse and/or neglect, including self-neglect, whether known or suspected, and there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the person. There is a comparable absolute duty where the person has experienced serious abuse and/or neglect but survived. In these circumstances there is no discretion; a review is mandatory… SABs may also commission reviews in any other situations involving adults with care and support needs. Such reviews are discretionary”
