North West Safeguarding Policy

The Northwest Safeguarding policy (PDF 290Kb) has been developed by Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs) across the North West, to meet the requirements of the Care Act and the Department of Health Statutory Guidance.

The policy is designed to support current good practice in adult safeguarding and outlines the arrangements which apply to all local authorities within the North West region.
