Safeguarding Adults Board structure
Sub-groups of the board
The board has four sub groups which have been established to deliver the board's work plan; each is chaired by a member of the board and has its own terms of reference.
Quality, effectiveness and audit sub group
The key role of the group is to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of activities undertaken by Havering Safeguarding Adults Board (HSAB) organisations, individually and collectively, to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults in Havering and advise them on ways to improve their practice further.
Community engagement sub group
The community engagement sub group consists of voluntary and community groups and organisations with a key role to raise awareness of safeguarding within our local community and to educate our local community on the topic of safeguarding. It is currently working to support the board’s prevention strategy.
