Hull Safeguarding Adults Board

About Us

The Hull Safeguarding Adults Board is a statutory board formed under the Care Act 2014. It consists of senior members from Hull City Council, Humberside Police and Hull NHS Clinical Commissioning Group.

It has an independent chair, Rick Proctor.

The Board is the strategic lead body in Hull for safeguarding adults with care and support needs that may be suffering or at risk of abuse or neglect.

The Care Act places statutory functions on the Board.

It must publish a strategic plan, write an annual report and conduct a safeguarding adult review if an adult with care and support needs dies and abuse or neglect is suspected.
