Safeguarding Children, Young People and Adults at Risk in the NHS: Safeguarding Accountability and Assurance Framework

The first joint NHS England and NHS Improvement Safeguarding Accountability and Assurance Framework (SAAF) has just been published. This framework builds on its predecessor by strengthening the NHS commitment to promoting the safety, protection and welfare of children, young people and adults.

This framework has been developed in partnership with other organisations and professional bodies. It is intended to clarify the roles and responsibilities of those we work with in a system that is developing rapidly. In addition, it provides the flexibility needed at local level to support professional practice and the partnerships needed to promote healthy behaviours to keep individuals and communities safe from harm.
