Adult Safeguarding Review

The Sheffield Adult Safeguarding Partnership (SASP) Board will arrange a serious case review if:

  • an adult in Sheffield dies as a result of abuse or neglect, whether known or suspected, and there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult
  • the Board knows, or suspects, that an adult living in Sheffield has experienced serious abuse or neglect
