Royal Greenwich Safeguarding adults board annual reports

In 2017/18, the Safeguarding Adults Board was chaired by Mark Godfrey, who is independent of the Council and all of the statutory and voluntary organisations in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Mark has held this position since August 2015.

The Chair reports directly to the local authority Chief Executive and meets regularly with the Director of Health and Adult Services, and other key partners.

The Board Manager post sits within the Safeguarding Adults Team for the Royal Borough of Greenwich Council and is designed to ensure a strengthening of support that will enable the Safeguarding Adults Board to confidently meet the requirements of the Care Act 2014 and deliver better outcomes for vulnerable residents.

Under the Care Act 2014, the Safeguarding Adults Board has three core duties of which one is the requirement to publish an Annual Report detailing what the Safeguarding Adults Board has done during the year to achieve its main objectives.
