The LSAB Quality Assurance Framework is complemented by the LSAB Case Review Framework (see below) which is designed to support local agencies to learn from cases with poor outcomes and apply learning to practice.
LSAB Case Review Framework
Southampton Local Safeguarding Adult Board (LSAB) is committed to promoting a culture which values and facilitates learning and in which the lessons learned are used to improve future practice and partnership working to safeguard adults at risk. The Southampton LSAB has developed this multi-agency Case Review Framework to support this approach. It has been developed for use by all partner agencies and local organisations which work with adults at risk across the Southampton Local Safeguarding Board area, it is based on the framework developed in the Hampshire and other 4 LSAB areas to ensure consistency for services that work across the county.
The Care Act 2014 Statutory Guidance states that ‘Regular face-to-face supervision from skilled managers is essential to enable staff to work confidently and competently in difficult and sensitive situations.’ And that ‘Skilful and knowledgeable supervision focused on outcomes for adults is critically important in safeguarding work’.
This paper outlines the core principles of effective supervision to which the local safeguarding adult board requires all partner agencies to closely consider. Supervision policies should fully reflect this guidance.
