The Purpose of the Annual Report
Adult Safeguarding was spelt out for the first time in law, in the Care Act 2014. Local authorities were required to set up multi-agency safeguarding boards to undertake the actions arising from the board’s strategic objectives, from the annual Business Plan and from any Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SAR) and to report on these annually, ensuring the report is available to a wide audience including on the HSAB Web Site.
The overarching purpose of the Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board is to help and safeguard adults with care and support needs and the work of the board is supported by five sub groups and Task & Finish groups for specific short pieces of work.
