Safeguarding Adult Reviews

The Care Act 2014 states that Safeguarding Adult Boards have a statutory responsibility to arrange a Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) when an adult dies as a result of abuse or neglect (whether known or suspected), where there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively together to protect the adult.

The overall purpose of a SAR is to promote learning and improve practice. It is not to re-investigate or to apportion blame.

You can view each of our published SARs and Learning Reviews below, along with the accompanying Press Statements and Learning Briefings.
