Adult services and health
Safeguarding adults procedure
The Safeguarding Adults Procedure manual must be used where there is a concern, allegation or disclosure of abuse in relation to any adult who is a Liverpool resident or in receipt of services in Liverpool.
It has been produced by the Liverpool Safeguarding Adults Board, to ensure that people who are at risk of abuse can be given the help and support they need.
The board consists of lead officers from health and social care services, the police, and voluntary and private sector organisations.
If you would like to find out more about the work of the safeguarding board you may find the following documents of interest.

Safeguarding Adults Reviews
A Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR) is a multi-agency process which explores what the agencies and people involved in a safeguarding case could have done differently to prevent harm and/or neglect to the adult.
A SAR’s purpose is not to apportion blame but to improve practice and identify opportunities to promote learning and training.
