Who we are

The Gateshead Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) became a statutory body in April 2015. 

To improve scrutiny and challenge we have an independent chair. This is Sir Paul Ennals. The three statutory members of the Gateshead Safeguarding Adults Board are:

Gateshead Council

Northumbria Police

Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group

In Gateshead we recognise the importance of partnership working. The wider board membership includes:

Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust

Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust

The Gateshead Housing Company

Gateshead College

Northumbria Community Rehabilitation Company

National Probation Service

South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust

Oasis Aquila Housing

Advocacy Centre North

We also have an independent lay person on our Board who has an important role in relation to providing challenge and posing questions that professionals closely involved in the work of the Board may not necessarily think of asking.
