Meet the Team

Oxfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board (OSAB) aims to keep adults at risk in Oxfordshire as safe as possible by making sure everyone understands their roles and responsibilities regarding safeguarding through training, learning and local resources.  The Business Unit supports OSAB to do this.

Our Business Unit is funded through partnership contributions.  Currently, there is an Independent Chair, and two members of paid staff.

The County Council is our main funder and accountable body, but everything we do is done in partnership with colleagues not just from social care, but also, health, police, community safety and the voluntary sector to name a few.  Our Chair is independent, which helps to ensure the partnership has independent scrutiny and challenge.
