Multi-agency policies and guidance

Southampton SAB works closely with other Safeguarding Boards in Hampshire, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight so that practitioners across the areas from all services can share policies, procedures, tools and guidance which set out how local agencies will work together. Collectively we are known as the ‘4LSAB’.

The purpose of the 4LSAB policy and guidance is to support staff to respond appropriately to all concerns of abuse or neglect they may encounter, providing a consistent response across the county. The 4LSAB Safeguarding Adults Policy and Guidance is updated regularly.

Please see below for further policies and guidance.
