Safeguarding Adults Reviews in Oxfordshire

Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SAR’s) are a statutory review process for adults with care and support needs who have died or been seriously harmed through abuse or neglect. The review aims to find out what agencies did well and what they could’ve done better as a partnership. It is not an investigation to assign blame or fault at any agency, it is instead looking at systemic issues of multi-agency working and how this could be improved.
