Welcome to the Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board

Safeguarding adults is about protecting someone’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect and about preventing the abuse of adults who might be unable to protect themselves because of their disabilities or care needs. It is something that everyone needs to know about.

Safeguarding Adults is everyone’s business and the Care Act 2014 made adult safeguarding a statutory (legal) duty for all professionals.

This website is for Lambeth residents, health and social care professionals and all organisations working with the people of Lambeth. It aims to give you information about Adult Safeguarding in Lambeth, by setting out what adult safeguarding means and what you can do to support adults who may be at risk of or experiencing abuse or neglect. 

The website also gives other relevant information about the Mental Capacity Act, the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and provides information about the Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board.
