An analysis of alcohol-related Safeguarding Adult Reviews published in 2017
Alcohol Change UK have published a research report which analysed 11 Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs) published in England in 2017 in which alcohol was identified as being a significant factor in the person’s life and/or death. The aim was to better understand the role that alcohol plays in those situations where vulnerable adults die; and to draw out any lessons that could be learned.
A SAR is commissioned following the death or serious harm of an adult with care and support needs. While each SAR can contain useful learning in its own right, Alcohol Change UK also wanted to look across all alcohol-related SARs to see whether there might be broader patterns and broader learning.
