Local Safeguarding Adults Board
The Blackburn with Darwen Local Safeguarding Adults Board has a major role to play in ensuring that adults ‘at risk’ are kept safe through effective partnership working. The role of the Board is to try to ensure that people in Blackburn with Darwen, who may be at risk as potentially more vulnerable, through physical, emotional/mental illness or disability (including older people) are assisted to keep themselves safe and are protected where necessary by agencies which have that responsibility.
