Safeguarding Adult Review

Safeguarding Adult Reviews

The Review and Learning (RLG) sub group to the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) is responsible for ensuring that if things go wrong, organisations across the city can look at what lessons can be learnt to improve the practice of individuals or organisations.

The RLG has developed guidance for carrying out a general lesson learnt review and Safeguarding Adults Review in accordance with S44 of the Care Act 2014 (the legislation which covers adults’ safeguarding) If the SAB has commissioned a Serious Adult Review (SAR) it must provide information about these reviews and ensure it tells people what action it has taken in response to the findings of the review.

If the Board is required to undertake a Serious Adult Review the report and the lessons learnt will be published here.
