Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SAR) and Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHR)

There are 3 active SAR’s that have been commissioned in Norfolk to investigate cases of abuse.
The Board considered a final draft of a SAR where concerns were raised about residents of a private hospital. There are 6 recommendations and 13 learning points within the report which will be published in September 2022.

Outputs from the SAR for Joanna, Jon and Ben (Cawston Park)

A “Coalition for Change” has been developed as a voice for parents and families and those with lived experiences to ensure that all stakeholders have an input into those in long term care. The Coalition is looking for an employed Programme Co-ordinator, which is funded by Norfolk County Council and the Integrated Care Board. This will be launched in September 2022.
A policy that addresses the issues of racism against staff (and volunteers) by people needing care, or those around them has been developed as one of the recommendations in the SAR.
