Safeguarding Adults Partnership

Welcome to the Isle of Man Safeguarding Adults Partnership ('SAP') 

On this site:

This section is intended to provide helpful safeguarding information, advice and guidance to our communities, those who work with adults, and adults themselves.

Our purpose as a Partnership is to ensure that there is effective safeguarding of adults in the Isle of Man. It is also to ensure that all those who provide services to adults work effectively together to provide coherent, co-ordinated safeguarding provision. Robust information sharing, communication and collective working is critical in ensuring adults are safeguarded.

The SAP comprises senior leaders from the key agencies who work with children and young people: Health, Social Care, the Police, Probation and Third Sector. It is supported by a range of groups that lead on key strands of activity related to our annual Business Plan.

This year we have set ourselves 5 priorities for action –

  • Ensuring safeguarding is everyone's business
  • Ensuring safeguarding policies and procedures are robust and have positive impact in safeguarding adults
  • Tackling areas of risk
  • Developing the workforce to deliver effective safeguarding
  • Enabling engagement with children and young people and with staff

We have endeavoured to provide the information that you will find useful in making safeguarding your business and in understanding the work and impact of the Safeguarding Adults Partnership ('SAP'). We welcome your feedback and any ideas that you have that would make it even more useful.
