What is the Safeguarding Adults Board?
The aim of the North Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board is to ensure effective coordination of services to safeguard and promote the welfare of local adults who may be at risk of abuse and harm within North Lincolnshire.
The Board aims to promote awareness and understanding of abuse and neglect among service users, carers, professionals, care providers and the wider community and works to generate community interest and engagement to ensure that Safeguarding is "Everyone's Business".
The three core duties of the Board are to:
- Publish an annual strategic report
- Publish an annual report
- Conduct any safeguarding adult reviews
