Safeguarding Adults Partnership Board (SAPB)

The key aims of the West of Berkshire SAPB are to:

  • Ensure that whenever abuse or neglect is suspected or reported, there is an effective, consistent, and coordinated response across Berkshire
  • Ensure that partner agencies have preventative measures in place to lessen the likelihood of abuse occurring
  • Increase the awareness of safeguarding issues amongst the general public, carers, service users, voluntary and paid workers
  • Provide a framework for the further inter-agency development of safeguarding policy including learning lessons from practice in Berkshire
  • Provide positive safeguarding outcomes for service users, which are best achieved by robust and effective inter-agency working.
