Adult's safeguarding information

Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board (LSAB)

Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board brings together the police, local councils, health organisations, care providers and third sector organisations to make sure safeguarding policies, procedures and working practice are effective in supporting and protecting adults at risk.

The Board’s objective is to improve local safeguarding arrangements and ensure partnerships act to help and protect adults at risk of experiencing neglect or abuse. Safeguarding adults is everybody's responsibility, and the Board supports its agency partners in ensuring that its workforce are clear about their roles and responsibilities around safeguarding adults.
