Spencer Gasson made this Freedom of Information request to Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, what is the process for people involved in a safeguarding investigation or enquiry team to declare a conflict of interest?

Does the Board have a policy regarding conflict of interest?

Can an individual being safeguarded attend the Board meetings at any point?

How does an individual find out who's on their safeguarding team in different organisations?

How many safeguarding adult concerns raised have involved staff or volunteers at one of the safeguarding partner organisations? How is that investigated and reported?

If an individual is concerned about how they aren't being adequately safeguarded, what's the process and would you consider publishing a contact at each partner organisation in a 'whistleblowing' style position they could go to?

What's more important in the style of approach and prioritising things,learning from it or protecting the individual from harm?

Yours faithfully,

Spencer Gasson

LSABAdmin, Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Board
