Safeguarding agencies across Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral are working together to ensure that adults are able to live in safety and free from abuse and neglect.

From April 2017 the existing Safeguarding Adults Boards in these areas have formed the Merseyside Safeguarding Adults Board to work together to achieve more effective and personalised safeguarding. The new combined board has been running for twelve months and has built on the work of the previous Safeguarding Adults Boards and the valued contributions of partner agencies.

User Engagement in the Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton & Wirral (KLSW) Combined Adult Safeguarding Board

In April this year, four Merseyside Local authority areas established a Combined Adult Safeguarding Board. The authorities involved are Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral.

The newly established Board has the Voice of the Service User a priority.

In order that we can ensure that we have the widest possible reach across the area, we are to establishing a directory of service user groups and organisations.

A questionnaire has been developed to assist in this process, and we are looking to gather as many responses as possible.
