What Difference Does Legislation Make? Adult Safeguarding Through The Lens Of Serious Case Reviews And Safeguarding Adult Reviews

In 2017 South West ADASS commissioned a thematic review of Adult Safeguarding Serious Case Reviews and Safeguarding Adult Reviews, undertaken in the region between 2013-2017. 

The review analyses the common themes identified within the 37 Review reports considered. It considers the process of commissioning and managing Reviews and disseminating the learning from them. It is a rich and useful resource for Safeguarding Adults Boards, managers, practitioners and SAR lead reviewers.

The recommendations from the thematic review are being progressed through the SWADASS 2018/19 adult safeguarding workplan.
