Northamptonshire Safeguarding Adults Board provides the strategic leadership for all safeguarding work across the county and its activities are funded via four Statutory Partner agencies; North Northants Council, Northamptonshire Police and NHS Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Group and West Northants Council.

The Board’s vision is to work together to keep people safe.

We believe that people should be able to live a life that is free from harm, communities have a culture that does not tolerate abuse, that Northamptonshire is a place where we work together to prevent abuse and where people know what to do when abuse happens.

To make this vision a reality requires an ongoing community wide effort, involving cooperation between the person, their families and carers, and all the support agencies across the partnership. Our strategic priorities drive this joint working and partnership.

For each priority, we have a clear set of actions and activities and these will be monitored during the two-year period.

Priorities for 2021 to 2023

  1. Making Safeguarding Personal
  2. Prevention
  3. Quality
