The Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB) was established to promote, inform and support multi agency safeguarding adults work.
In Birmingham we aim to safeguard and protect adults at risk so that they live a life free from abuse and neglect.
Safeguarding adults means helping adults at risk who need support from community care services to keep their independence, remain safe and exercise choice in their life.
We, the Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB), have agreed a Safeguarding Vision for Birmingham which is to:
Promote and protect individual human rights, independence and well-being and secure assurance that the persons thought to be at risk stays safe, are effectively safeguarded against abuse, neglect, discrimination, are treated with dignity and respect and enjoy a high quality of life.
ADASS Guidance supports the above as it too promotes that people should be able to live life free from harm within their communities.
