Safeguarding Adults in Leicestershire and Rutland

The Safeguarding Adults Board brings together organisations across Leicestershire and Rutland to oversee the multi-agency approach to safeguarding adults with care and support needs.

Safeguarding adults means helping adults at risk who need support from community care services to keep their independence, remain safe and exercise choice in their life. The Board partner agencies from the statutory, voluntary and independent sector come together to seek assurance that the persons thought to be at risk stay safe, are effectively safeguarded against abuse, neglect, discrimination, are treated with dignity and respect and enjoy a high quality of life.

Everyone can play an important part in safeguarding adults, by looking out for and seeking help for those who may be at risk of harm.
