About the Bromley Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB)

What is the BSAB 

The Bromley Safeguarding Adults Board, or BSAB for short, is a multi-agency partnership providing strategic leadership for adult safeguarding across the Bromley area.

It has an independent chair to oversee the development and implementation of an overall strategy and annual business plans and to ensure that this reflects learning from investigations and any Serious Case Reviews and other areas of work.

BSAB acts as the key mechanism for agreeing how agencies will work together effectively to safeguard and promote the safety and well-being of adults at risk and/or in vulnerable situations.


The BSAB aims to promote awareness and understanding of abuse and neglect among service users, carers, professionals, care providers and the wider community and works to generate community interest and engagement in safeguarding to ensure “Safeguarding is Everyone’s Business”.

BSAB is responsible for ensuring that the systems in place locally to protect people at risk are proportionate, balanced and responsive. The BSAB's Practitioners Library provides a range of guidance and procedures to help you keep adults safe in Bromley.

The BSAB is particularly focused on making sure vulnerable adults are kept safe from harm and abuse.
