Liverpool Safeguarding Adults Board aims to ensure all adults in the city live healthy, happy, fulfilling lives 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 are outlined in our strategic plan and set out below:
Priority 1: To review safeguarding systems processes and performance
Priority 2: To develop city-wide approaches to safeguarding practice
Priority 3: To learn from experience to improve how we work
The board structure
Liverpool Safeguarding Adults Board has links with other boards and strategic partnerships including the Health and Wellbeing Board, Team Liverpool, Liverpool Safeguarding Children Partnership and Liverpool Citysafe Board.

To help us achieve our priorities, we have set up a number of subgroups chaired by senior managers from within the partnership. These groups report to the board and are listed below.
