Bradford Safeguarding Adults Board online consultation now live

Bradford Safeguarding Adults Board is now in the process of writing its new strategic plan for the next three years, which will explain how the Board will work in the future to keep people safe.

As part of the process Bradford Safeguarding Adults Board is pleased to announce that its on-line consultation on the proposed plan is now live where professionals and the public can tell the board what they think.

Under the terms of the Care Act 2014 Safeguarding Adults Boards are required to publish a strategic plan for each financial year, setting out how it will meet its main objectives; explain how the Safeguarding Board will work to prevent abuse and neglect and how it will help and protect people with care and support needs at risk of abuse and neglect. The Safeguarding Adults Board must also engage and consult with the local Healthwatch and the local community in preparing its plan. 

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Portfolio Holder for Healthy People and Places said:

“This is the first time the Bradford Safeguarding Adults Board have gone out to consultation on the plan and its crucial that people feedback with ideas and views so that together we can help shape the safeguarding plan for Bradford.

“Safeguarding is everyone’s business and it is important that we all play a part in protecting people, preventing any form of abuse from taking place and making sure we all feel safe in society”

The Safeguarding Adults Board wants to hear the views and ideas of the public and partner organisations on its new proposed plan.

Jane Geraghty, Chair of Bradford Safeguarding Adults Board said:

“Having just taken on the role as the Independent Chair of Bradford Safeguarding Adults Board, I am delighted to be joining at a critical point when we are developing our three year plan. 

“I am looking forward to hearing the views and responding to people in our communities about what is important to them in order to keep themselves safe.

This consultation is opened to everyone including partner agencies, staff across all organisations and sectors, people who use services, carers, community groups and the wider public.

If you feel you would like to give your ideas and thoughts back as a group instead of individually then the consultation does accept this.

The consultation has begun and will end on Friday 27 July 2018 so any comments must be made by the latest midnight on Friday, 27 July 2018.
