What is the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board?
Although there has been a group of senior managers meeting about vulnerable adults since 2001, the one we currently have - the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board - was set up in 2008. It's main job is to work together to help vulnerable adults who may have been abused and also to help stop vulnerable adults being abused.
Who are they?
The board is made up of partner agencies, for a full list please see our Membership page. In addition to the main partners, the board also works with a wide number of agencies as part of the NSAB Partnership who are involved in safeguarding adults in Nottinghamshire.
What do they do?
The board are the 'strategic lead' for safeguarding in Nottinghamshire.
This means that they make sure things like the policy, procedure and guidance is right, that the training carried out is right and that the staff in all the organisations who are part of the board know what they have to do. They also commission Serious Case Reviews to look at where things have gone wrong, and produce an Annual Report to keep everyone informed on how they are performing.
The board currently meets on a quarterly basis and publish the minutes from these meetings.
