Stockport Safeguarding Adults Board

The Stockport Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) includes members from:

  • the council
  • the police
  • the NHS
  • independent care providers
  • the voluntary sector

It's aim is to make sure that all vulnerable adults in Stockport remain safe, and that any alleged cases of abuse are investigated. The board makes sure all organisations work together and have the same procedures and policies in place to make sure vulnerable adults are protected.

Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs)

Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs) aim to determine what the relevant agencies and individuals involved in a case may have done differently to prevent harm or death. This is so that lessons can be learned from the case, and those lessons applied to future cases to prevent similar harm occurring again.
