Making Safeguarding Personal

Making Safeguarding Personal is at the heart of the work of the SAB and all safeguarding practice. It involves an outcome focussed, person centred approach to safeguarding adults.  It arose following feedback from people who had used safeguarding services which suggested that people felt driven by a process and felt out of control. It is a personalised approach that enables safeguarding to be done with, not to, people.
