The Safeguarding Adults Board (STW-SAB) covering the Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin areas includes all the organisations which work with people who are elderly, frail, poorly, disabled or who have learning disabilities or mental health problems. The Board is committed to making sure that everyone in the community stays as safe and healthy as possible, especially those who are or may be at risk of harm from other people.
Whether you are a member of the public or a professional concerned about an adult at risk we hope that the information on these pages will help you to report any matters of concern.
View our fact sheet, which gives details on who to contact if you have concerns.
We will present information which we hope you find useful, in learning more about the work of the Safeguarding Adults Board, and our common aim of protecting adults at risk from harm.

This sets out the skills and competencies which we require all staff in the field to have or to be actively working towards.
We produce a report each year which sets out the Safeguarding Adults Board's work. Here are the last three annual reports:
We believe that treating people with dignity is a cornerstone of effective safeguarding. View more information about the Dignity Network.
