Safeguarding Adult Reviews

The purpose of a Safeguarding Adult Review is not to re-investigate or apportion blame but to establish whether lessons can be learnt from the circumstances of a case that may improve practice or the way in which agencies and professionals work together to safeguard vulnerable adults. 

The focus of Safeguarding Adult Reviews, in line with both multi-agency policy and national guidance is to:

  • Learn from past experiences and the specific event examined. 
  • Improve future practice and outcomes by acting on learning identified by the review. Dudley Safeguarding Adults Board will develop an Action Plan for Partners when a Safeguarding Adults Review has been completed. 
  • Improve multi-agency working and compliance with any other multi-agency or single agency procedures, including regulated care services.
