Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs)

Southwark Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) has a statutory duty to conduct a review when a person with care and support needs has died or experienced serious harm from abuse and / or neglect and there are concerns about how agencies have worked together. This is set out in the Care Act 2014 and is called a Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR). It is focused on learning and improving safeguarding responses, not on blame.
