Within each local authority, it is required for there to be a Safeguarding Adult Board (SAB) as detailed in the Care Act 2014.

Southampton Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) is group of agencies that come together to co-ordinate work to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults in our city. The main objective of the SSAB is to assure itself that local safeguarding arrangements and partners act to help and protect adults at risk of harm in Southampton.
