Safeguarding Adults Reviews

A Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) is an independent review into a case where an adult with care and support needs has died or been seriously harmed and abuse or neglect is known or suspected. SARs are carried out where Safeguarding Adults Boards identify there are concerns about how organisations worked together or there may be learning to support improvements in safeguarding.

The aim of a SAR is to establish any lessons learnt from the case and to identify how these have, or will be, acted upon and lead to sustainable improvements to practice and the prevention of death, serious injury or harm to adults.

Our SAR Policy can be found here.

SAR referral forms can be found on the Board Members' section of the website. If you are not a Board member and need to make a referral for a SAR, please contact the office for a referral form - lrspbo@leics.gov.uk. (This is not a referral for safeguarding support – for safeguarding concerns, please use the report concerns button at the top of this page).
