Working in partnership to enable adults in Somerset to live a life free from fear, harm and abuse

The Somerset Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) is a partnership committee providing strategic leadership for adult safeguarding across the county.

This site provides a range of information for people who may experience or be at risk of experiencing abuse, their families, carers, and anyone who works with people with health or social care needs.  This includes a section with links to information about coronavirus.

As well as general information on keeping safe and how to report concerns, there is a dedicated area for professionals providing access to a range of policy and practice guidance, and safeguarding resources.
