Board Structure


The Safeguarding Adults Board meets on a quarterly basis to:

  • receive assurances that partners in Surrey are working effectively to safeguard adults at risk from abuse and neglect.
  • review learning from SAR’s and to discuss how local practice should change as a result of this learning.
  • receive updates from member organisations on their work to safeguard adults and to discuss how partners can support by working collaboratively and efficiently.


The SAB is supported by three sub-groups:

  • The Delivery Group is responsible for the operational delivery of the strategic plan. It considers the policy and training requirements and how the SAB can be assured of progress.
  • The Safeguarding Adults Review sub-group receive all SAR notifications, they review the notification against the statutory duty of the SAB to complete a review and make recommendations to the chair of the SAB.
  • The Business Management Group

In the near future it is hoped the the work of the SAB will also be supported by a Community Reference Group and a multi-agency Scrutiny Group.
