Safeguarding Boards

Their job is to provide expert and detailed scrutiny that all agencies are meeting their responsibilities to keep vulnerable adults and children safe, and that systemic risks are identified and addressed. The Boards' work provides constructive challenge about where we need to improve and reassurance when the right processes are in place. Further information can be found on each Board's website:
