Strategic plan and annual reports

The Care Act 2014 stipulates that Safeguarding Adult Boards must publish a strategic plan and annual report:

Gateshead SAB Strategic Plan 2024 - 2027

The Safeguarding Adults Board Strategic Plan 2024-2027 was approved by the Board in February 2024. The Strategic Plan contains five strategic priorities which were identified through a multi-agency development session which took place in September 2023.  The plan details the objectives and initiatives which will ensure the board can meet its identified goals under each priority area:

  1. Strengthening Safeguarding -  The Gateshead SAB will support strengthening safeguarding practice across the partnership and ensuring resources are available to support practitioners in their day to day safeguarding activities and that good practice is evidenced and practitioners can develop their knowledge and skills in this area.
  2. Learning and Development - The Gateshead SAB will provide a multi-agency learning and development offer to promote a culture of continuous learning to ensure we have a workforce which is knowledgeable and confident in safeguarding adults.
  3. Data and Information - The Gateshead SAB will ensure there is a comprehensive dataset and dashboard which includes data from partners. Themes and trends are identified 
    through the data presented and the board will take steps to address these.
  4. Prevention of Harm - The Gateshead SAB recognises the need to prevent harm from occurring rather than responding once the harm has occurred. 
  5. Involvement and Engagement - The Gateshead SAB recognises the importance of working with statutory and non-statutory partners to ensure we have robust systems in place to adequately represent the people who are involved in operational and statutory safeguarding.

Actions and outcomes will be monitored through the board and the plan will be reviewed on an annual basis.
