Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board (NCSAB) is the statutory forum for agreeing on how services, agencies, organisations and the community work together to safeguard adults at risk of harm and abuse.

Role of the NCSAB

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 the local authority is meeting any of those needs or not)
  • Is experiencing or is at risk of harm, abuse or neglect
  • As a result of those with care and support needs, unable to protect themselves from either the risk of, or the experience of abuse or neglect (Care Act 2014, Care and Support Statutory Guidance)

NCSAB welcome any feedback and comments on our plans. Don't hesitate to get in touch with the Board office on the email address below. Please note this email address is not for submitting safeguarding referrals or for contacting the Adult Social Care Safeguarding Team. The Board are not part of Adult Social Care, have no access to Social Care records and do not have involvement in operational cases. To submit a Safeguarding Referral, please click below
