Safeguarding Adult Reviews

A Safeguarding Adult Review takes place following the death or serious injury of an adult as a result of harm, abuse or neglect. The review looks at whether partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult.

Under the Care and Support Guidance (Department of Health, Care & Support Statutory Guidance, issued under the Care Act 2014), a Safeguarding Adults Board must conduct a review. The board will decide what review process will promote effective learning and improvement to prevent future deaths or serious harm occurring again.
