Serious Cases (DHRs & SARs)

Safeguarding Adult Reviews

When an adult with care and support needs dies or is seriously injured, and abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor in the death, local organisations will consider immediately whether there are other adults in the same situation who are at risk of harm and need to be kept safe.

Once this has been done, Wolverhampton Safeguarding Adults Board Board will gather initial evidence to see if it is likely that lessons could be learned from the ways that organisations,services and professionals supported the adult who has died.

If there is sufficient evidence, a Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) will be commissioned by Wolverhampton Safeguarding Adults Board to:

  • Establish whether there are lessons to be learned from the case about the way professionals and agencies work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults with care and support needs 
  • Identify clearly what those lessons are, how they will be acted upon, and what is expected to change as a result
  • Improve inter-agency working to better safeguard and promote the welfare of adults with care and support needs in the future

 Non-statutory Learning Reviews

Sometimes the criteria for a Safeguarding Adult Review are not fully met, but it is still considered that lessons could be learned to improve the ways that organisations and their staff work together to safeguard adults with care and support needs. In such situations a non-statutory Learning Review will be carried out and the recommendations / actions will be published.
