Welcome to The Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adult Board
The Buckinghamshire’s Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB) has a responsibility for safeguarding adults, in order to protect adults at risk of harm or abuse and to enhance their well-being and daily experience.
In 2019 a change was made to the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB) which in turn provided an opportunity to review the chairmanship of the two boards and their respective business units. As a result, a decision was made to appoint a single Independent Chairperson for the BSAB and the BSCP, and to merge the business units together.
The joint business unit is managed by a Safeguarding Partnership Manager, and supported by five further staff covering varied roles to support the work of the multi agencies and ensure that the lived lives of adults is supported in the best way possible.
The BSAB has a three year Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board Business Plan 2020 - 2023 that sets out the strategic objectives and priorities it wishes to adopt from April 2020 right through until March 2023.
Each year the Board will produce an annual report which sets out what has been achieved against the plan and what areas we need to refocus on in future years.
The BSAB also has a strategic Learning and Development Plan 2020 - 2022 that runs from April 2020 through until March 2022.
This plan supports and provides learning and development pathways, not only for multi agencies, but also for charity and volunteer organisations.
Throughout the work carried out by the BSAB there is a strong and consistent focus on ‘Making Safeguarding Personal’ and placing the individual at the centre of what we do, by adopting the ethos “talk to me, hear my voice”.
The premise of such is to listen to the voices of those who need our support, to ensure that we work to the highest standards possible with this shared philosophy throughout a multi-disciplinary service.
Although it is a shame that we can’t all meet in person, we’re delighted to invite you to be part of an interactive conference on ‘LEARNING FROM SAFEGUARDING ADULT REVIEWS’ involving input from three guest speakers:
Professor Suzy Braye is an experienced independent Adult Safeguarding Consultant who will be speaking on key themes for practice improvement with a focus on mental capacity and interagency working.
Alfie Moore is an ex Police Officer of 18 years bringing his policing knowledge and experience to life in his BBC Radio 4 Comedy series IT’S A FAIR COP. Alfie skilfully blends layman explanations about the law, with very anecdotes from his own experiences.
Megan Karnes is Director of Hoarding UK a charitable organisation committed to increasing choice and control for those effected by hoarding.
As well as input from speakers there will be an opportunity to take part with audience polls and questions & answer sessions.
