Abstract:
The purpose of this article is to report the findings from research into the governance of adult safeguarding policy and practice in England, with particular focus on interagency partnership arrangements expressed through Safeguarding Adults Boards. The study comprised a systematic search and thematic analysis of English-language literature on adult safeguarding governance, a survey of Safeguarding Adults Board documentation, and key informant interviews and workshops with professionals involved in adult protection. The effectiveness of adult safeguarding governance arrangements has not been subject to prior formal evaluation and thus the literature provided little research-led evidence of good practice. The survey and workshops, however, revealed a rich and complex pattern of arrangements spanning a number of dimensions – the goals and purpose of interagency working, the structures of boards, their membership, chairing and rules of engagement, their functions, and their accountabilities. The research focus here is England, and thus does not incorporate learning from other jurisdictions. In view of the absence of outcomes evidence identified, there remains a need to investigate the impacts of different forms of governance.The article identifies standards to benchmark the approach to governance taken by Safeguarding Adult Boards.The benchmarking framework will enable Safeguarding Adults Boards to audit,evaluate, and further develop a range of robust governance arrangements.
