BAME and Safeguarding Adults Survey

Dear all

This survey is to monitor the BAME population's perception of the Safeguarding process for Adults in the borough. Current data indicates that the number of safeguarding referrals for the BAME population is much lower than the number of people represented by this population in the borough. This survey was commissioned by the Sutton Safeguarding Adults Board (SSAB) and designed with members of the Race Equality Group in Sutton to ensure we captured the concerns within the BAME community regarding the adult safeguarding process.  Your personal information will remain anonymous. Please assist with forwarding this email with the link to staff and colleagues in this borough. Thank you.

The closing date for the survey is Friday 25 June 2021.

Clare's Law

With the Right to Ask, anyone who has concerns about an individual's past history of domestic abuse can make a Right to Ask request to the police, so a Social Worker can do this, the partner, family member, a friend, neighbour. The police will then check their records for this person. They will only provide information that is relevant to domestic abuse and this information will be given in person to the female who is in that relationship. The Right to Know is where there is knowledge that someone is at risk of being in a relationship with a known perpetrator they will then give this information in person to the partner at risk.
