Safeguarding Adults Board

Welcome to the West of Berkshire Safeguarding Adults Board. The Board covers the Local Authority areas of Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham.

Safeguarding means looking out for and trying to protect others in our community who are vulnerable, or may be at risk of harm. If you think that someone is at risk, you need to raise an alarm. Everyone can make a difference.

This website contains information to help if you are:

An adult who is at risk because of your age, an illness or disability, and someone is hurting you, frightening you, stealing from you or neglecting you.

Worried that someone you know is being abused or neglected.

A short film to help everyone Make Safeguarding Personal.
