About us

Liverpool Safeguarding Adults Board aims to ensure all adults in the city live healthy, happy, fulfilling lives safe from abuse and neglect.

Working alongside local communities and partner organisations, we aim to promote the health and wellbeing of our residents so they can live healthy, happy, fulfilling lives, have choice and control, safe from abuse and neglect.

The Care Act (2014) requires each local authority to set up a Safeguarding Adults Board. The main objective of the Board is to assure itself that local safeguarding arrangements and partners act to help and protect adults in its area who:

  • have needs for care and support
  • are experiencing, or at risk of, abuse or neglect
  • as a result of those care and support needs, are unable to protect themselves from either the risk of, or the experience of, abuse or neglect

Each Safeguarding Adults Board has three core duties. It must:

  • publish a strategic plan for each financial year
  • publish an annual report
  • conduct Safeguarding Adults Reviews

Our priorities

Our priorities are outlined in our strategic plan and set out below:

Priority 1: To review safeguarding systems processes and performance
