Safeguarding Adults Board

The Safeguarding Adults Board is a partnership of different organisations who aim to help and protect adults in Islington with needs for care and support, who are experiencing (or at risk of experiencing) abuse or neglect. 

Our vision is to 'improve safety and people's feelings of safety by promoting the right of all who are vulnerable to live free from abuse and neglect'.

The Safeguarding Adults Board oversees the different ways we are improving safeguarding adults. The Board makes sure we are accountable for what we do, we meet national and local standards and we communicate with the people of Islington.

The Board ensures vulnerable adults maintain independence while staying safe from harm, our staff are trained and good at working with adults and we learn from local experience and national policy.

Find information on our board strategy and information on what board partners have achieved in the last year to help protect adults at risk from abuse and harm in our 'useful documents' below.

Safeguarding Adults reviews

One of the core duties of a Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB), under Section 44 of the Care Act 2014, is to review cases in its area where an adult with needs for care and support. Sometimes, a case of abuse or neglect can be so serious that we hold a Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR).

Some examples of when this is required are when someone has died, when a person has been seriously injured or impaired or where abuse appears to be part of how an institution works.

A SAR is not an enquiry into the incident. It is a way to make sure that we learn from the incident and our policies, procedures and practice improve.

The Islington Safeguarding Adults Board, together with three other Boards, published a safeguarding adults review in the death of the adult known as Yi.  Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board led the review and the reports can be found on Safeguarding Adults in Lambeth website
