Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board (NCSAB) is the statutory forum for agreeing how services, agencies, organisations and the community work together to safeguard adults at risk of harm and abuse.
It is a statutory requirement for local authorities to set up a Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB). The main objective of a SAB is to assure itself that local safeguarding arrangements and partners act to help and protect adults in its area who:
- has needs for care and support (whether or not the local authority is meeting any of those needs)
- is experiencing, or are at risk of harm, abuse or neglect
- and as a result of those care and support needs is unable to protect themselves from either the risk of, or the experience of abuse or neglect (Care Act 2014, Care and Support Statutory Guidance)
The SAB has three core duties:
- it must publish a strategic plan for each financial year that sets how it will meet its main objective and what the members will do to achieve this
- it must publish an annual report detailing what the SAB has done during the year to achieve its main objective and implement its strategic plan, and what each member has done to implement the strategy as well as detailing the findings of any safeguarding adults reviews and subsequent action
- it must conduct any safeguarding adults review in accordance with Section 44 of the Care Act
NCSAB welcome any feedback and comments on our plans. Please contact the Board office on firstname.lastname@example.org
