Strategic Plan 2019 - 2024 consultation

We are currently consulting on our Strategic Plan for 2019 - 2024.  The consultation began on Thursday 8 November and ends on Thursday 13 December 2018 

Under the terms of the Care Act 2014 Safeguarding Adults Boards (SAB) are required to:

  • Publish a strategic plan for each financial year, setting out how it will meet its main objectives. 
  • The plan must explain how the SAB will work to prevent abuse and neglect and how it will help and protect people with care and support needs at risk of abuse and neglect.
  • The SAB must engage and consult with the local Healthwatch and the local community in preparing its plan.


The Gateshead Safeguarding Adults Board is now writing its strategic plan for the next five years. This plan will explain how the Board will work in the future to keep people safe. The plan will be reviewed annually.

Let us know your views and ideas on the proposed plan.

This consultation is open to everyone. That includes partner agencies, staff across all organisations and sectors, service users, carers, community groups and the wider public.
