Welcome to East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board

East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board is a multi-agency organisation responsible for ensuring the protection and safety of the most vulnerable adults in the East Riding. Its role is to ensure that all agencies that deliver services within the East Riding of Yorkshire work together, to minimise the risk of abuse to adults at risk and to protect those subject to abuse.

"Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and this not only includes those professionals charged with caring for and protecting the most vulnerable within our communities but also the wider community itself."

The East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board endorses a much broader safeguarding agenda that goes further than just protecting adults at risk of harm. Safeguarding must encompass initiatives that ensure the most vulnerable are treated with dignity and respect, are afforded opportunities to live their lives as independently as possible, whilst taking reasonable measures to ensure that risks of harm are minimised and sensibly managed.

The website has been designed with everyone in mind and I hope you will find the content informative, thought-provoking and of practical use.
