The West of Berkshire Safeguarding Adults Partnership Board (SAB) covers the three local authority areas of Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham. It is a statutory mechanism for ensuring that there is a robust multi-agency safeguarding framework in place and for monitoring the effect this has on protecting adults.
A priority for the SAB for 2019/20 is: The SAB will understand from key stakeholders, why there has been an increase in organisational safeguarding and seek assurance from commissioners, that there are adequate preventative measures in place, consistent across the partnership where practical.
We would like to hear from Providers of Adult Social Care Services that operate across the West of Berkshire. As a first step to develop our links with your sector we are asking that you complete a short online survey. This includes voluntary organisations and you do not have to be delivering services on behalf of a Local Authority.
The survey is open now and closes on the 4 November 2019, the results of this survey will be presented the SAB in January 2020, where next steps will be agreed.
