Safeguarding Adults in Leicestershire and Rutland

The Safeguarding Adults Board brings together organisations across Leicestershire and Rutland to oversee the multi-agency approach to addressing 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. 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.

The Board is currently running the #ourdoorisopen campaign to raise awareness and encourage everyone to play their part in safeguarding adults at this time.
