Safeguarding Adults Reviews library

The Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR) library will contain reports and associated resources to support those involved in commissioning, conducting and quality assuring SARs.
Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs) are a statutory requirement for Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs). SARs can inform adult safeguarding improvement. They can identify what is helping and what is hindering safeguarding work, to tackle barriers to good practice.

Latest - February 2022

The National Network for Chairs of Adult Safeguarding Boards have begun collecting SAR Reports published from 01 April 2019.

SCIE’s SAR Library pages will be updated in due course. We are considering how best to give access to earlier SAR reports, some of which are found on these pages. We are also considering how to continue to progress a common coding scheme for learning that enables searching within SAR reports.
