Supporting the vulnerable adults in Brighton

Information, advice and procedures for the care community

Brighton SAB

The Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Adult Board (SAB) is a group of statutory, private, voluntary, and independent organisations across Brighton & Hove who work together to empower and protect some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

Our purpose is to raise awareness and promote the welfare of vulnerable adults by the development of an effective co-operative. We are committed to ensuring that the work done effectively brings about good outcomes for adults so that people live safe and secure lives.

We have three core duties we must do in order to fulfill our statutory requirements:

  • develop and publish a strategic plan setting out how we will meet our objectives and how our member and partner agencies will contribute
  • publish an annual report detailing how effective our work has been
  • commission Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs) for any cases which meet the criteria for these.

We are required to demonstrate how our strategic and assurance arrangements enable us to carry out the duties and functions specified under the Care Act.

This website provides a range of useful information for people who may experience, or be at risk of experiencing, abuse. There is also a dedicated area for professionals, providing a wide range of information and guidance on protecting the adults using their services.
