The East Sussex SAB is a multi-agency partnership made up of senior representatives from a range of organisations, which provides leadership and strategic oversight of adult safeguarding work across East Sussex.
Our core membership, as specified in the Care Act 2014, includes our statutory partners from East Sussex County Council, East Sussex NHS Clinical Commissioning Group and Sussex Police.
Additional key community and voluntary agencies and lay members are represented on the Board to reflect that safeguarding activity and interventions can only be effective where there is collaboration and shared commitment.
