Welcome to East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board

Would you like to help us develop our new three-year Safeguarding Adults Board Strategy?

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.

We are currently working on our new three-year safeguarding strategy which covers the East Riding of Yorkshire.  The strategy will tell people what we are going to do and how we are going to do it.  It gives information about our priorities for the next 3 years.

To help us do this, we want to hear your views and comments about the actions you think we should take over the next three years to help people stay safe in the East Riding.  This will help us to make sure that we're focusing on the right things and the issues that matter most to you.

"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.
