The Safeguarding Adults Board is set up to help everyone to work together in the most effective way possible. The Board does this by setting out procedures and plans based on an overall strategy.

The Safeguarding Adults Board is set up to help everyone to work together in the most effective way possible. The Board does this by setting out procedures and plans based on an overall strategy. Our three year strategy sets out our aims and objectives and a framework within which to achieve them.
Each year we write an annual report saying what the East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board has done to reach its goals. The report outlines the role and function of the Board, highlights the achievements of the Board and its partners during the year.
Organisations often need to share information. This ensures that their services benefit local people and meet their needs. But they need to make sure they share only the information that is necessary. They must also protect people’s privacy.
The Information protocol is made up of two tiers:
Tier 1 protocol is a general information sharing protocol which is Humber wide in collaboration with partners in the Humber region. This is called the Humber Information Sharing Charter available to download below:
Tier 2 protocol is made of two separate protocols and these are in place when there is the sharing of more specific information between ERSAB partners.
The two separate Tier 2 protocols are for the Safeguarding Adults Review sub-group and the Learning, Audit and Improvement sub-group which share personal and sensitive information between agencies in these groups.
East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board is a multi-agency organisation responsible for ensuring the protection and safety of adults at risk of harm in the East Riding.
The Board is led by an independent chair and made up of representatives from a number of organisations including the local authority, police, health, care and voluntary sectors and is also responsible for holding partners to account through scrutiny and governance.
The Board will meet quarterly and members will attend wherever possible and will inform the chair if they are unable to attend. A nominated deputy may attend on an infrequent basis.
Organisational commitment to attendance is crucial and if this function is delegated within organisations, the delegated member must have the ability to make decisions on behalf of the organisation they represent.
The Board will oversee the following:
