Safeguarding Adults

This website includes information on safeguarding adults at risk from abuse, and the work of East Riding’s Safeguarding Adults Board (ERSAB). Our aim is to help everyone to understand the part they play in protecting adults and ensuring even the most vulnerable are kept safe and well. If you report a concern you will be listened to, supported and involved every step of the way.
