What is the Safeguarding Adults Board?
Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Regional Safeguarding Adults Board is a multi-agency partnership comprising of statutory, independent and charitable organisations who work together to safeguard adults from abuse.
The role of the Board is to ensure the effective coordination of services to safeguard and promote the welfare of local adults who may be at risk of abuse and neglect within the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan area.
The Board aims to promote awareness and understanding of abuse and neglect among service users, carers, professionals, care providers and the wider community and works to generate community interest and engagement to ensure that Safeguarding is “Everyone’s Business”.
The main objectives of the Board, as outlined in the Social Services & Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 are:
- To protect adults within its area who have needs for care and support (whether or not a local authority is meeting any of those needs) and are experiencing, or are at risk of, abuse or neglect
- To prevent those adults within its area mentioned above, from becoming at risk of abuse or neglect
