Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs)

The Care Act 2014 placed a statutory duty on Safeguarding Adult Boards to undertake Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs).

The purpose of a SAR is not to reinvestigate or to apportion blame but to:

  • Establish if there are any lessons to be learnt from the case about the way in which local professionals and agencies work together to safeguard adults
  • Review the effectiveness of procedures
  • Inform and improve local inter-agency practice
  • Improve practice by acting on learning
  • Highlight good practice
