On this site you will find information about Blackburn with Darwen Local Safeguarding Adults Board (LSAB), multi-agency safeguarding policies and procedures, training opportunities, access to e-learning, local agency details and the latest news.

The overarching purpose of the LSAB is to help and safeguard adults with care and support needs and lead adult safeguarding arrangements through effective partnership working.

The role of the Board is to ensure that people in Blackburn with Darwen, who may be at risk of abuse or neglect are assisted to keep themselves safe and are protected where necessary by agencies which have that responsibility.

The Board also needs to be confident that action is taken by the responsible agencies to investigate cases of alleged abuse and to provide support to people if they have been subject to abuse in any way and to learn and improve from the reviews of serious incidents where adults have died or suffered significant harm.

Here on the LSAB website there is information for everyone to find out more about making Blackburn with Darwen a safe place for all residents. The LSAB is also very keen to listen to the community themselves about what matters to them when it comes to keeping people safe. The Board will work closely with its members and the local community to make sure their voice is heard.
