Safeguarding Adults Board

Dudley Safeguarding Adults Board includes representatives from Dudley Council, West Midlands Police, the NHS, West Midlands Fire Service, voluntary agencies plus independent sector groups who provide services for adults in Dudley.

Dudley Council is the lead agency for investigation and decision making in all cases where there are concerns about abuse of vulnerable adults. This is a complex area of work that requires close partnership working to protect vulnerable adults from abuse. It also requires a focus on the needs and wishes of the vulnerable adult.

The Board ensures that each agency works together to protect adults from abuse and the risk of abuse.

For further information about the Dudley Safeguarding Adults Board including the latest annual report and business plan, please see publications.

 

From April 2015 the board is a statutory body. The board has a jointly funded independent chair providing joint direction with Children Services.
