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.

The Family Approach Protocol has been commissioned by the 4 Safeguarding Children Boards (4LSCBs) and 4 Safeguarding Adult Boards (4LSABs) in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton. The protocol was commissioned in response to findings from a range of reviews across all Board’s which highlight the need for professionals to work effectively together to achieve better outcomes for adults, children and their families across all areas.

The information in this toolkit has been jointly developed by the 4LSCBs and 4LSABs. It is free to access and available to all practitioners from any agency / organisation working with children, adults with care and support needs, and their families across the areas.
