The Rotherham Safeguarding Adults Board brings partners together and promotes true partnership working across all agencies to ensure that safeguarding is embedded in all aspects of working life.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business and only by working together will we raise the awareness of safeguarding and ensure that the vulnerable and those who lack the mental capacity to make the right decisions are supported, safeguarded and protected from harm.
The Rotherham Safeguarding Adults Board works to protect adults with care and support needs from abuse and neglect.
The RSAB’s objective is to ensure that local safeguarding arrangements and partnerships act to help and protect adults at risk or experiencing neglect and/or abuse.
The RSAB is a multi-agency strategic, rather than operational, partnership made up of senior/ lead officers within adult social services, criminal justice, health, housing, community safety, voluntary organisations.
It coordinates the strategic development of adult safeguarding across Rotherham and ensures the effectiveness of the work undertaken by Partner Agencies in the area. The Rotherham Adult Safeguarding Partnership Board (‘RSAB’) aims to achieve those objectives whilst supporting individuals in maintaining control over their lives and in making informed choices without coercion.
