Quality Assurance

The SAB should seek assurance of the effectiveness of safeguarding activity and that safeguarding practice is continuously improving and enhancing the quality of life for adults with care and support needs and carers in its area, in line with ‘Making safeguarding personal’. This should address issues of quality as well as quantity, particularly from the perspective of those who have experienced safeguarding services. 


In order to effectively quality assure safeguarding adult practice, Hillingdon Safeguarding Adults Board undertakes various activities including:

  • The maintenance of a multi-agency dashboard of key safeguarding data that is presented at the quarterly SAB meeting
  • Undertaking targeted audits of areas of practice
  • Completing an annual review of SAB objectives and local partnership arrangements

The SAB and the Safeguarding Children Partnership have a joint Communication and Engagement Strategy to support engagement with the community and those with lived experience of adult and child safeguarding support to ensure their voices are incorporated into the work of the SAB.
