Salford Adult Safeguarding Board

The Care Act 2014 puts Adult Safeguarding on a legal footing. In April 2015 Salford Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) became statutory. The role of the SSAB is to ensure that local arrangements for safeguarding adults are effective at protecting those adults in Salford who are considered to be adults at risk.

The SSAB works to promote the wellbeing, security and the safety of adults at risk, recognising their rights, mental capacity and personal responsibility in order to help prevent abuse wherever possible.

Under the Care Act 2014 the SAB has three core duties:

In addition the SSAB should evidence its arrangements for peer review and self-audit and evidence how SSAB members have challenged one another and held each other account.

Salford's Adult Safeguarding Board meets four times a year to oversee developments to adult safeguarding work in the city. Membership includes representatives from the core statutory agencies (the local Authority, the Police and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups). The board also has representatives from a range of other partners including mental health services, community and hospital services and a range of voluntary sector organisations.  

The board is independently chaired by Dr Steven Pugh. You can find out more about the work of the SSAB by reading the documents below including the three yearly strategic plan of the board, the one year action plan and the annual report.
