The Policy and Procedures were adopted by Bracknell, Slough, Reading, West Berkshire, Windsor & Maidenhead and Wokingham in April 2016. They are regularly updated and staff and managers should regularly refer to the on-line version. Staff can sign up to receive email alerts for amendments.
Our vision in Berkshire is that all agencies will work together to prevent and reduce the risk of significant harm to adults at risk of abuse or neglect, whilst supporting individuals to maintain control over their lives and make informed choices without coercion.
The Berkshire Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures are reviewed and amended twice yearly by the Berkshire Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures Group. Proposed changes will be endorsed by the three Safeguarding Adults Boards (Bracknell and Windsor and Maidenhead, Slough, and the West of Berkshire) prior to publication.
