How To Refer For a Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR)
Anyone can refer a case to be considered for a Safeguarding Adults Review.
Section 44 of The Care Act 2014 outlines that a Safeguarding Adults Board must review a case where a person with care and support needs has died as a result of abuse or neglect. Or if a person is still alive and suffered serious abuse or neglect and there is a concern about how agencies worked together. This is called a mandatory Safeguarding Adults Review.
The Safeguarding Adults Board may also undertake a discretionary Safeguarding Adults Review if a case is referred which does not meet the above criteria but the Safeguarding Adults Board is of the view that there are lessons to be learned.
In order to refer a case to be considered for either a mandatory or discretionary Safeguarding Adults Review please email Brent.Lsab@brent.gov.uk asking for a referral form to be sent. Please complete the form and return it to the above email address.
If you are unable to complete the form please email Brent.Lsab@brent.gov.uk asking for a member of the team to make contact with you.
Please note, Brent Safeguarding Adults Board can only consider cases where the person died or was abused or neglected within the London Borough of Brent.
