NSAB Annual Report for 2017-18 published

Today the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) is pleased to announce the publication of its annual report for 2017-18. This year’s report looks and feels different in an effort to make it more accessible. The report summarises the work of NSAB and its partners. It shows how together we are taking forward our aim for people to live safely in communities that:

• have a culture that does not tolerate abuse

• work together to prevent harm

• know what to do when abuse happens

Highlights of the report include:

  • a summary of the work on Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs)
  • an outline of the important work of our Locality Safeguarding Adults Partnerships (LSAPs)
  • contributions from NSAB’s funding partners

Joan Maughan, NSAB’s independent chair, said

‘I believe our strategy of targeting awareness-raising in the workforce of both statutory and voluntary sector organisations has paid dividends. Given the thousands of staff who work with vulnerable adults across Norfolk in those organisations, they represent the ‘eyes and ears’ of safeguarding, as well as being aware citizens of the communities in which they live. Our thanks are also due to those colleagues who attend and support the work of the Locality Safeguarding Adults Partnerships and the subgroups. Without their commitment there would be little chance of addressing the wide ranging and complex safeguarding issues that involve vulnerable adults.’

To help share the report as widely as possible, NSAB is asking all partners and supporters to:

  1. download a copy and use it to brief staff across your organisation/service
  2. share a copy with one organisation you work with
  3. if you are on Twitter, post a tweet with a link to the report to your followers
