Lewisham Safeguarding Adults Board

Strategic Business Plan

The Partnership Compact and Strategic Business Plan describes how organisations and their representatives on the Lewisham Safeguarding Adults Board will work together in partnership to safeguard the residents of Lewisham in 2019-20. 

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult’s wellbeing is promoted including, where appropriate, having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action.

The Board’s priorities in 2019-20 are to:

  1. Prevent adult exploitation, abuse and neglect
  2. Develop intelligence led, evidenced based practice
  3. Strengthen partnership working.


The detailed Aims and Objectives for 2019-20 (page 11) are set out inside the full document published here:

 Lewisham SAB Partnership Compact & Strategic Business Plan

One of these Objectives was to create a Communication and Engagement Strategy which outlines how the Board will effectively communicate and meaningfully engage with a wide cross-section of communities and agencies across the Borough, to meet the Board’s statutory requirement to create a portfolio of evidence linked to community awareness of adult abuse and neglect. This will promote the work already being delivered across Lewisham, and help the Board plan how to continue developing a ‘whole community approach’ to the prevention of adult abuse and neglect.
