Working together to safeguard adults with care and support needs

Welcome to the City of York Safeguarding Adults Board website

We believe that everyone has the right to live their life free from the experience, or risk of experiencing abuse and neglect, so they are able to maintain their own independence and wellbeing.

The Safeguarding Adults policy applies to adults, over the age of 18, who need support from health and social care services to maintain their independence.

Get in touch!

As this website is new we want to ensure you are able to find information about safeguarding adults; in a way that makes sense and is all in one place.

To help us achieve this we would love to hear your feedback on what you like, don't like or anything you feel is missing. Please click the feedback button below to complete an online form:
