About East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board

East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board is a multi-agency organisation responsible for ensuring the protection and safety of the most vulnerable adults in the East Riding.

The Board is led by an independent chair and made up of representatives from a number of organisations including the local authority, police, health, care and voluntary sectors and is also responsible for holding partners to account through scrutiny and governance.

Meetings are held quarterly where discussions take place around issues including national and local safeguarding issues, best practice and training.

Corporate Statement - Role

The East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board’s (ERSAB) core role is to ensure that all agencies that deliver services to the communities of the East Riding of Yorkshire work together to minimise the risk of abuse to adults at risk and to protect those subject to abuse.

The East Riding Safeguarding Adults Board has a secondary but equally important role to promote awareness within the East Riding of Yorkshire of the wider safeguarding agenda in order that safeguarding adults at risk becomes everyone’s business.
