Safeguarding Adult Review Group

Birmingham’s Safeguarding Review Group takes its duty very seriously under The Care Act (2014) to conduct SARs.

The Board has developed its Safeguarding Adult Review Group comprised of safeguarding lead professionals.

A Safeguarding Adult Review is to:

  • establish whether there are lessons to be learned about the ways in which local professionals and agencies worked together to safeguard adults at risk
  • review the effectiveness of procedures (both multi agency and those of individual organisations)
  • inform and improve local inter-agency practices
  • improve practice by acting on learning

The vision of the Safeguarding Adult Review Group is to respect the citizens of Birmingham, who are subject to SARs by ensuring we learn from their experiences.

Their stories will inform our partnership working practices, influence prevention and early help strategies and will reduce harm and neglect.

The learning provides organisations the opportunity to improve areas of their ‘safeguarding adults at risk’ practices in order to prevent the reoccurrence of similar serious incidents. 

The result of the review can have implications and suggest improvements in areas such as:

  • Safeguarding Policy and Procedures
  • Safeguarding training requirements
  • Audits and evaluations
  • Conducting Investigations
