Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board

The Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board is a partnership with many organisations who work with and support adults at risk in Hertfordshire. 

Work for an organisation that has a safeguarding concern about an adult?

Professionals, providers and statutory agencies with a safeguarding concern should make a safeguarding referral.

Please do not send safeguarding concerns to us in any other way.


The board works with organisations to make sure adults at risk are cared for and supported somewhere free from abuse, harassment, violence or agression both at home and at work.

The role of the Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board is to:

  • Use Safeguarding Adult Reviews and performance data from key agencies to update and deliver effective safeguarding practices in Hertfordshire
  • Challenge current safeguarding practices in Hertfordshire
  • Make sure safeguarding practices are followed by key organisations to a high standard
  • Agree and oversee a strategic plan and publish an annual report.


Do you know of a vulnerable adult who is at heightened risk of going missing due to their care and support needs? 

The Adult at Risk of Going Missing Form has been developed to record information about a vulnerable adult who is at risk of going missing. The Guidance for Partner Organisations provides more information.
