Safeguarding Adult Reviews - Family Members

safeguarding adultsWhen an adult who has care and support needs dies or suffers serious harm, as a result of abuse or neglect, Safeguarding Adult Boards (SABs) may need to review what has happened. This is called a Safeguarding Adults Review or SAR for short. 

These reviews are to see whether any lessons can be learned about the way organisations (e.g. councils, the NHS, police etc.) worked together to support and protect the person who suffered harm. 

The people in charge of the review are professionals from a range of organisations and understand that this is likely to be a very difficult time for families, friends and carers, but they want to learn as much as possible about how to do things better in the future. 

Warrington Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB) reviews local cases and would welcome your involvement in the process as much as possible. We believe families, friends and carers should have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have and to share your thoughts and opinions. 

The Leaflet below tells you what happens when a SAR is required to be undertaken, and what you should expect.
