Safeguarding Adult Reviews in Cheshire East

What Safeguarding Adult Reviews are

When an adult who needs care and support either dies or suffers serious harm, and when abuse or neglect is thought to have been a factor, Cheshire East Safeguarding Adults Board (CESAB) may need to review what has happened. This is called a Safeguarding Adults Review, or 'SAR' for short.

A SAR is a multi-agency review carried out to determine what agencies involved could have done differently that could have prevented harm or death from taking place.

The aim is not to apportion blame, it is to promote effective learning and improvement to prevent future death or harm occurring, and to improve how agencies work together towards achieving positive outcomes for adults and their families.
