Cabinet Decision: 2nd September 2010
Title of Item/Report
Stockton-on-Tees Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults update 2009-10
Record of the Decision
Members considered a report that provided initial analysis of the activity of Stockton on Tees adult safeguarding during the past year (1st April 2009 to 31st March 2010) and comparisons with 2008/9 and 2007/8 to assist in plans for adult safeguarding in 2010/11. The Tees-wide Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Board report for 2009-10 would provide further analysis of Stockton’s data in relation to the other local authority areas across the Tees Valley.

It was explained that during 2010/11 the Tees-wide Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Board, supported by the Tees-wide Adult Safeguarding Business Manager, would provide strategic direction for Local Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Committees and support for operational processes. Stockton’s Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Committee would continue to contribute to the business of the Tees-wide Board and to the work of the Tees-wide Board sub-groups

The information contained in the update provided would be shared with the Tees-wide Board and statutory partners and would be used to contribute to the first joint Tees-wide Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults report covering 2009/10, which would provide strategic information from partner agencies and collate activity information across Tees.

Members welcomed the report and felt it would be helpful in raising the profile of issues surrounding safeguarding vulnerable adults.

RESOLVED that the content of the Stockton on Tees Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults update 2009 - 10 be noted.
