Bexley Safeguarding Adults Board release annual report

The Bexley Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB) has published its 2016/17 annual report, which documents its progress and achievements. 

The Board works to protect and promote individual human rights so that adults stay safe and are at all times protected from abuse, neglect, discrimination, or poor treatment.

Over the past year, it has continued to influence key agencies in Bexley through offering consistency and leadership.

The BSAB 2016/17 Annual Report can be viewed on the London Borough of Bexley website.

Cllr Brad Smith, Cabinet Member for Adults’ Services, said: “I am confident that the skills, experience and knowledge embedded in the Board will continue to improve outcomes for vulnerable adults in Bexley. 

“The Board’s ability to challenge, empower and support partners has given greater scope for prevention and development work to help vulnerable adults. 

“I am pleased with the outcomes and achievements presented in the report and grateful for all the hard work and commitment by partners to help us overcome any new challenges that the future will hold."
