Safeguarding Adults Board
The Cambridgeshire Safeguarding Adults Board has now merged with Peterborough. The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Adults Board brings together representatives of the main agencies in the statutory, voluntary and independent sector, responsible for working with and providing services for vulnerable adults.
The Board will work together in co-operation to safeguard vulnerable adults from abuse, ensuring that services provided are of a high standard and that arrangements work effectively.
The Board will closely follow government advice set out in the:
- No Secrets multi-agency guidance published in 2000.
- Joint protocol between Association of Directors of Social Services (ADSS), Commission for Social Care Inspection and Association of Chief Police Officers of December 2003.
- Standards for Better Health 2004.
- Safeguarding Adults’ Standards published by ADSS in October 2005.
And any subsequent guidance or legislation issued by central government.
The Board will provide strategic leadership in the management and co-ordination of adult safeguarding arrangements for all services in Cambridgeshire.
