Adult Safeguarding Review

If a vulnerable adult dies or experiences serious harm, the Sheffield Adult Safeguarding Partnership (SASP) Board will consider if a serious case review or case review is required.

Currently, there is no statutory duty to undertake reviews, but we feel that they evidence best practice and a commitment to improve safeguarding adults services within Sheffield.

From 1 April 2015, reviews became mandatory when the Care Act 2014 came into effect. 

Please see our guidance for more information.
