SCIE Safeguarding Adult Review Library Project

The Department of Health has commissioned SCIE and RiPfA to develop a library of Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR) reports with an aim to maximise the value of individual SARs through two different kinds of resource. One will support the quality of individual SARs and the other will enable more widespread and effective use of the learning from SARs. This will support a virtuous circle whereby as the quality of individual SARs goes up, it also supports their being used to better effect.
